Research your fruit and veg, we recommend looking at the conditions that help them to thrive and how much care they need. Aiming for a mix of hard to grow and easier plants ensure you will be successful. Think about the time of year you will be harvesting; tomatoes and lettuce can grow for months and when they have finished how about a home-grown pumpkin for Halloween! Feeding your plants can help them to thrive, and we have some sustainable tips for you here too. #Facts: A single young tree absorbs 13lbs of CO2 each year.
