Hi everyone,

I have been gardening for as long as I can remember. Firstly with my Dad as a young girl and now throughly enjoy growning anything and everthing in my own garden.

I have a small suburban garden north facing, but manage to grow enough fruit and veg to feed ourselves and a lot of our friends. I grow a lot of veg in containers and raised beds, along with a green house, and I just love this time of year when you can plan what to grow and how to get the most out of the growing season. I am looking forward to getting some advice from experts on this site.

M

Hi James,

i am going along the tried and tested route with my vegetables this year, Potatoes, (Diseree, and Charlotte), brocolli, cabbage, purple kale, carotts, beetroot, perpetual spinach, onion, and garlic, and the normal salad veg, tomatoes (italian plum, moneymaker), various lettuce, cucumber, scallions.

I am interested in growing melons but when I am ready I will need advice. I am sure the forum will come in handy for this!!
