7 easy to grow vegetables at home

Growing vegetables isn’t as arduous as some people say it is. You don’t need an allotment or an acre. And the satisfaction of eating something you have grown is unrivalled. With a little space and a little sun you can put your garden to work and put something homegrown and organic on the table. It’s loads of fun, good for your health and you can rest easy whilst your veg does the majority of the work.

Here are 7 vegetables ideal for your garden planters and pots.

Peas

Garden Peas: Grow your own vegetables at home

Growing peas are a great choice for new gardeners and they offer a sweet, high-yield with relatively low effort. To get these growing all you need is a container with good depth and something for the vines to climb up for maximum yield. Peas eaten fresh from the vine are a lovely, sweet treat and you won’t get the same snap from supermarket bought produce.#

Planters or pots so long as the soil is loose, the weather cool and the water is plenty you’ll soon be crunching into one of the nation’s favourite vegetables. Growing carrots is relatively straightforward. Only requiring a little thinning soon after carrots begin to grow. Your carrots are ready to harvest as soon as the tops begin to show, but the longer you leave them in the more they will swell.

Bush tomatoes

Grow tomatoes at home.

Bush tomatoes are a much easier alternative to grow than some other popular varieties of tomato, as these don’t need supporting and grow well in hanging baskets and pots, in a greenhouse or outdoors. Tomatoes grow best in lovely warm weather like most garden vegetables. Unexpected cold snaps can do real damage to tomatoes.

Packed full of goodness, grows quickly and it keeps on giving. Kale is a wonderful addition to any garden and doesn’t take up lots of space.

Salad leaves

Salad leaves taste so much better when picked right from the garden and help stop waste. Shop bought salad leaves soon lose their freshness and often end up in the bin. Like kale, you can harvest what you need and wait for the plants to re-grow. Plant lots of different types for a colourful fresh salad.

Potatoes

Potatoes are easy to grow – simply plant them in the ground (eyes up) or an old compost bag, cover the leaves with soil when they first appear (known as ‘earthing up’), and harvest a few weeks later.
