Winter in the edible garden

Growing your own herbs, fruit and vegetables is fun and rewarding and allows you and your family to access produce free of chemicals. It’s also a great activity for children and grandchildren; hopefully encouraging them to eat what they grow!

 Winter is a great time to plant fruit trees as it gives the plants time to settle in their roots before spring. They are not expending any energy on leaf production allowing all their energy to be spent establishing strong roots for future growth.

Available now are a great range of dwarf peaches and nectarines. Suitable for small gardens or large pots these trees are small in stature but the fruit they bear is full sized and delicious!

Also available now for planting are lemons, limes, plums, almonds, apricots and olives.

 Herbs not only add flavour to your meals but they also have a number of health benefits. Pick frequently to avoid going to seed. In the winter months you can successfully grow rosemary, parsley, thyme and coriander
