🌱Whether your dream vege patch is bursting with salad greens for summer barbeques, or carrots and leeks for hearty winter soups, nothing beats the satisfaction of ‘growing your own’.
This Tui Garden guide is designed to help beginner vege gardeners on their way to harvesting a bumper crop of homegrown vegetables in 3 simple steps: Prepare, Plant, Nourish.
Spring is the perfect time to start a vege patch for fresh homegrown food! 🥬 We’ve got you sorted if you’re just starting out.
🌱 Choose a spot that is sunny, sheltered from the wind and easy to access for harvesting and watering.
🌱 Space doesn't need to be a barrier to growing your own. Small concrete planters, troughs, flexi tubs, wine barrels, terracotta planters, old baths, and wooden planters are all options to consider. You can easily grow your own with a container on the deck planted with salad greens and herbs.
🌱 As a rule of thumb spinach, lettuce, radish, rocket, leeks, broccoli, bok choi, cabbage, cauliflower, silverbeet, celery, spring onions and parsley are all good ‘beginner’ crops.
