    How to set up own vegetable garden?


    Hi there, I’m a novice gardener but I’m thinking about starting a vegetable garden in my back garden. What are the easiest vegetables to grow? Is there a rule about how much space each plant needs?

    "The best advice I have for you is to go to your local gardening centre and talk to an employee about what they have on offer, they are usually very happy to tell you exactly how and when to grow your vegetables. A great plant to start with can be strawberry plants as these are cheap and you can get a good harvest from a few plants, tomatoes can also be great, especially if you have a greenhouse. it’s all about just trying things and learning as you go, google can also be a great place to learn how to grow different veg."

    Easiest vegetables to grow are onions from bulbs. Beetroots are also fairly sraight forward as the seeds are quite large. Radishes grow very quickly are are very tasty. There are rules for spacing, but dont forget not all seeds germinate. Also once the plants are above soil , they can easily be transplanted. Herns such as time and rosemary are also easy and they do not require fertile soils.It is worth trying tomatoes"
