    We’re embracing growing our ownPlanting seeds, nurturing them, then eating the fresh produce is a joy more and more of us are discovering. As chef Raymond Blanc said, “You don’t need very much space to see the magic of growing food.” His 4.5 x 3.5m balcony is bursting with produce, all grown in containers – everything from broad beans, courgettes and tomatoes to potatoes and herbs. Food grown close to home makes sense, he said –“better taste, better textures, better colours, better nutrients”.You don’t have to have dedicated beds or containers, either. Adam Frost is mixing edibles in with a meadow garden. “I like the idea of being able to go into the garden and pick some of the stuff we used to have a relationship with, and dressing a salad with it or using it in a sandwich,” he said.

    Stake out a veg patchRailway sleepers set directly into the ground are a classic boundary material for a vegetable plot, and are a quick and effective way to keep plants neatly contained. To create a similar look, mark out individual beds and measure carefully to ensure you can comfortably access the centre of the bed from each side as well as leaving enough space to walk between them.
