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 food comes from, and that you’re eating organic produce!

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.
