Useful tips on how to grow & enjoy fruit & veg. from your windowsill !
Who am I to be giving this advice ?!
I don’t profess to be an expert on growing food in windowboxes by any means, but I do have a lot of gardening experience generally, having run community garden projects in Manchester and London, taught organic gardening courses, run my own landscape gardening company and gardened from as long as I can remember.
I also love to experiment with new gardening methods!
I’ve been particularly interested in the work of Garden Organic (formerly the HDRA) and have keenly read books by eminent organic gardeners, such as Dr. Shelwell Cooper and Patrick Whitehead on techniques which have really influenced me in my gardening.
As a gardener, I’m always learning and open to learn more. If you have any comments on anything you’ve read here or have any tips yourself then I’d really like to hear from you. Get in touch by clicking on the Gardener's Journal icon at the top of each page - Look forward to hearing from you !
