Grow your own!

windowsill-herb-gardenMy mantra is that you don’t have to have a garden to grow your own – anybody can have a go!

All you need is a hanging basket filled with tumbling tomatoes, a windowbox of salad leaves or some pots of mini vegetables outside the back door to enjoy a little self sufficiency.

You can sprout seeds in your kitchen, grow peppers in pots on a large sunny windowsill or grow small pots of herbs on your dining room table.

Get creative with your space, grow some healthy, organic food, reduce your food miles and save yourself some money!
