Now I’m all settled in our brand new flat and we have a spacious balcony, I’ve already started to think about what flowers and food I can look at growing next year. Companion planting is something which I’ve started to research into and think about. To anyone, like myself, who is relatively new to the grow your own scene, companion planting is a great way of growing a variety of tasty produce.
Some of my earliest and fondest memories are from playing in the garden at my grandparents and helping my grandad with his plants and vegetables in the garden. My grandad grew a variety of produce during my childhood, such as apples, tomatoes, pears and loads more.
Suttons, who provide seeds, flowers, vegetable plants, bulbs and so much more via their website, have created this really handy infographic all about companion planting and growing your own fresh fruit and vegetables.
As you can see, this infographic by Suttons is extremely useful and packed with plenty of helpful information. I hope you’ve enjoyed this educational blog post, as I’ve certainly learnt a lot when researching into the topic myself. I’m looking forward to seeing what I can successfully grow when spring arrives.
Do you grow your own? What is your favourite fruit or vegetable to produce?
