    • Plant Labels – no, you won’t remember what’s in each pot!  Always label them.
  • Where to grow them:

    • Where you grow them depends on your set up. You might have a 2 acre field, or a tiny apartment, a suburban back garden, allotment or maybe you’re part of a community garden. The good news is that you can grow food in any of them..
    • Most veg (with the exception of the carrots which have to be sown direct in a container or in the soil outside) benefit from being started off in a smaller pot or tray and then transplanted when they get a little bigger. We recommend sowing the seeds on a windowsill inside your house or apartment to start. Put them somewhere sunny. They will look amazing.
    • When the seedlings get a little bigger, we will be moving them in to bigger pots to grow them either inside or outside on your balcony, terrace, patio or veg patch.

    Remember, most veg do better in warm, sunny locations – just like humans really..
