A Guide To Growing Your Own Vegetables

Welcome to the Vegetable Garden Plot website, a down to earth guide to growing vegetables.

Growing your own food has never been more popular, and with the use of commercial pesticides and fertilisers, there has never been such a demand for naturally grown food.

But whatever your reason for starting a vegetable plot, there is nothing more rewarding than planting a seed, watching it grow, and having the first taste of your own grown vegetables. And if you’ve never grown your own before, you’ll find the flavor of your own veggies a world apart from what the supermarkets offer you.

Going back to nature to feed ourselves seems to excite a lot of people.  Not only do you get plenty of tasty vegetables for the year, but working outside in the fresh air benefits your health, gives you a work out and helps you to have a natural glow, so this is definitely something worth making time for.

It’s even rewarding to give your veggies away when you have a glut of crops and hear the comments you get about how tasty everything is.

You may start your growing journey in a small courtyard, to an allotment, until you find yourself renting a farm house with land and being completely veg-sufficient.

If you're fortunate to have mentors to turn to when faced with a vegetable gardening problem, someone like an experience gardener running a small-holding or market garden, they'll have a wealth of knowledge.

You might not be lucky enough to find expert growers close by, so this website will bring all vegetable garden growers together, offering advice and solutions to any growing challenges you may have.
