Their fruit and vegetable growing guide tells you:
- the best times to plant seeds
- when to harvest
- how often to water
- where to plant them
- and even creepy crawlies that may pay a visit!
Within the Learning Resources guide, you’ll get a little taste of what it’s like to be a farmer by growing carrots, potatoes, onions, beetroot, peas, strawberries, raspberries and more!
To help you learn more about what is being grown, the infographic includes fruity facts and an informational rainbow chart about the goodness hiding within your homegrown delights.
All of our fruit and vegetables are grown in a pot or on a plot, however, if you want to go the extra mile for your seedlings, you can start them off in a root trainer – this may be for the more advanced farmer…
