There’s nothing better than the taste of home-grown vegetables and there are so many benefits to growing your own. Not only will you save money, but, if you stay on top of your crop, you’ll also have a guaranteed supply of veg that’s not dependent on the supermarkets! Don’t get affected by veggie shortages when it’s easy to stay one step ahead of the game. Growing your own lettuce, courgette and aubergine plants will keep you in constant supply for the whole summer as well, so it really is a win-win situation.  What’s more, you’ll be regularly enjoying the fresh air and making the most of that unused patch of garden.

If you’re ready to get stuck in, take a look at our growing calendar and work out which varieties are best to sow at this time of year, and when they’ll be ready to harvest. You’ll soon be on your way to that perfect crop of carrots or parsnips to tuck into with your Sunday roast!
