Grow your own

This is something I have always wanted to do but never got round to it, so this year I decided to give myself a kick up the ass and get it sorted….lol!

Off to the garden centre I went, so much to choose from but I had to consider our weather climate too, after all I do live in Scotland where we’re not known for our sunny warm weather….lol!

To start me off I went with potatoes in a grow bag and some Tumbling tomatoes in a hanging basket. My garden is small and covered with slabs and stones so this was the easiest option for me.

These grow bags are brilliant idea for potatoes, especially as I’m just starting out. I went with Charlotte potatoes as these are one of my favourites.

Above was mine all finished, just a few months to wait and I hope it ends up looking like this…….                                                                          download1

 

I have to admit, I really hope my tomatoes grow, I decided to go with red and yellow tumbling toms for extra colour in my garden. I also planted some basil with them, perfect partner for tomatoes. I’m so excited about these. Fingers crossed.

Think I’d like to plant some spinach and lettuce leaves next………..oh the list is endless.

Happy planting.!

  1. Either that’s a huge hanging planter, or you’ve maybe put too many plants in a small space. Crowding can cause more disease and also means you’ll be watering daily, or even more often once summer arrives.
