    advice on growing fruit and vegetables in the south of England


    Which fruit and vegetables are most suited to growing in a raised garden bed in the UK? Does it vary depending on which part of the UK you live in? What can I grow here in the south of England that wouldn’t be possible further up north?

    "Carrots, beetroot, lettuce, tomatoes, etc will all do well. Also apple, pear, and cherry trees produce well. However, depending on how south you are, grape vines, lemon trees, peppers and aubergines could be grown. Keep an eye on the forecast and cover the plants when the temperature drops low."
