The summer harvest is beginning

We've been waiting patiently, for some of our veg to start producing fruits and they've come good over the past couple of weeks. First up we've got the courgettes. Here, we have four different varieties (from left to right): Midnight, Black Forest, Astia and Eight Ball. The last three are all new varieties to us... Continue Reading →

A short update on some of the other veg we have growing

We've got lots of things coming along in the greenhouse now, both vegetables and some bedding plants. We are growing them on in here to give them a bit of protection whilst the weather is still a bit unpredictable. The courgettes we're growing in containers were placed outside during the day for the past couple... Continue Reading →

A further update on our outdoor container crops

However, we wanted to share a couple of things that haven't gone quite (or at all!)... Continue Reading →

Thinning out the turnips

As we mentioned in our article the other week, the turnips are growing really well in their container so far. And are starting to produce tiny turnips! Unfortunately, there's not enough space in the container to fit them all in to maturity though. Therefore, we thinned them out at the weekend. This is the end... Continue Reading →

What else can you grow in containers?

So we've done courgettes, lettuces and beetroot that are planted out into containers. However, we thought we'd do a few containers that we were going to sow the seeds straight in to. We prepare the containers in exactly the same way: Put some garden soil into the bottom of the container to provide the pot... Continue Reading →
