Download Publication (PDF)

The selection of fresh vegetables now available in shops and supermarkets is greater than ever before. But there’s a huge amount of satisfaction to be had from growing part of the food we eat. A well-managed garden or allotment is an asset to any family and vegetable growing can rapidly develop into an absorbing hobby.

The quantities of vegetables to grow will naturally depend on circumstances. It can be as simple as growing a pot of parsley on your back doorstep or you can make it as big and fancy as you like. If there’s only a small area available preference should be given to items where freshness is especially valuable such as lettuce, herbs, spinach, parsley, peas and beans. If there’s more ground add brassicas, onions, carrots, beetroot, rhubarb and early potatoes to the mix. It will also add interest to try out some new or unfamiliar kinds each year.

Hard copies of this publication are available at the cost of €15 euros/copy including postage.
