In Season – Autumn￼
Autumn is traditionally known as a time of harvest and plenty. For those of us who grow even a little of our own food, we often spend this time doing a lot of baking, preserving, freezing and sharing.
Your tomato crop￼
The height of summer is behind us and if you are lucky you will already have started harvesting your tomato crop, if not find out how to here!
So you chitted, planted, earthed up and watered your potatoes and you’re wondering when it’s time to eat them. If yours are still in the ground, it’s time to prepare for harvest.

Did you know that the sugars in sweetcorn start breaking down into starch almost immediately?
Growing indoors in Scotland￼
My flat is cold and damp… will that cause problems?
Growing from Seed
Growing plants from tiny seeds and watching them grow into plants is rewarding and fun! Why not give it a go.
