The freshness, crispness and satisfaction of growing your own vegetables really does make it all worth it. A salad should include a variety of colours, shapes & textures to appeal to the eye as well as to the taste buds.

Tips for keeping a safe garden

2 December 2015 12:11:18 GMT

As summer sets into full swing, we are all spending more time out in the garden. The sound of lawnmowers whizzing round, the sizzling sounds and smells of BBQs and the sweet scented aromas emanating from our flowering summer plants are all present in abundance during this time of year. The fact is that we are a nation of garden lovers and we love spending time outdoors when the weather permits. We all enjoy relaxing to the natural sounds around us, enjoying a drink in the evening in the peace and comfort of our extended outdoor space or socialising with friends. Regardless of the size of our garden, patio, balcony, roof garden, whatever outdoor space we have available, when that sun comes out we will stay out.

So, what are weeds? Weeds are plants just like any other plants in your garden. They require sunlight, nutrition and water. Weeds tend to grow from either seed or they reproduce from roots. Root grown weeds tend to be more difficult to control as roots grow outwards from the main plant and new plants start sprouting, creating more main or parent plants. This is how they thrive! There are always a few billion weed seeds drifting through the air at any given time, so don’t think that you can rid a garden of weed seed.
