Grow this and more in your garden.   SiberianLena/

Want to eat food you grew with your own hands? Growing your own veg is soaring in popularity. It saves money, reduces air miles and cuts pesticide use. Plus it’s fun and rewarding!

Don’t feel daunted by veg gardening. You don’t need an allotment or a greenhouse. You don’t even need a garden – many crops thrive in pots on the patio, driveway or balcony!
