There are 3 simple steps to get growing…
- Pick out an area for your patch
- Chose whichever Instant Garden your taste buds the most
- When your box of greens arrived, get planting – It’s that simple!
Decide how big an area you’d like to fill.
When you’re deciding where to put your garden, try to choose a spot that’s sheltered and gets plenty of sun.
Once you’ve chosen your location, you need to decide on a method for growing that best suits you. If you’re not a fan of digging then raised beds are perfect. When building them, make sure you can reach the middle from both sides of the bed so you don’t have to stand on the soil.
If you don’t mind digging, then mark out an area and remove the turf. Or you can cover the grass with an old carpet for a couple of months before you want to plant. This kills the grass instead of having to remove it. Once cleared, the soil needs to be broken up with a fork. Push it in down to a spades depth and twist. This gives you a deep, well-turned soil that’s the perfect home for your baby plants to grow in.
You can grow your own food in almost anything, whether it’s pots, containers or even old baths. Take a look at our Grow It board on Pinterest for quirky planting ideas.
