Grow your own Fruit and Vegetables

Growing your own fruit and vegetables can save you money, lowering the cost of your grocery , as well as providing you with lots of satisfaction. The results may not be instant, but when the different seasons roll around, you’ll find yourself rewarded with yummy produce, perfect for meal times or snacking. It’s also good to know where your comes from, and that you’re eating organic produce!

It’s important that you don’t just plonk seeds in whenever you buy them; however tempting this is. Instead; wait for the right time of the year because otherwise it might be too cold for them to grow. You should also buy a bag of compost, which you can get for a low cost from Wilkinson, as this is full of nutrients. You can buy low-cost seeds and bulbs here too.

There are lots of things you can grow on a windowsill or out of a compost bag, if space is limited in your student home. Try growing cherry tomatoes, strawberries, carrots or potatoes. And, if you’re unsure of anything, use the Internet as a tool to help you.
