Things to Consider when Growing your Own Vegetables

The Right Location

Finding the right location is so important because a bad location can mean that you will have subpar veggies, we suggest choosing a sunny location. Most vegetables need to have at least six hours of direct sunlight every day. Only very few veggies want there to be shade, most need to soak up lots of sun. Find the place in your garden that has the most sunlight and plant your veggies there. 

Be careful to make sure that you grow your own vegetable kit in a place that has moist, well drained soil. Choosing a location with pools of water will not save you time with watering. Instead, the wet soil will encourage root rot, which will eventually kill your veggies, before you have the chance to eat them. You should avoid arid and rocky areas, which will impede growth and lead to weaker plants. Like Goldie Locks and the Three Bears, you need to find a place that is just right.

Start Small

When starting out growing your own vegetables, it can be tempting to want to grow too much. But this is a mistake for beginners. With a grow your own vegetable kit, you will find that we only give you a small selection of vegetables to choose from. This will stop you from being overwhelmed by the amount of vegetables you end up growing.

Grow Vegetables that you Enjoy Eating

This one is particularly important because you don’t want to go through the entire process of using a grow your own vegetables kit only for the veggies to go to waste. If you’re a family of green bean eaters, then you should plant them. By considering what it is you want to eat, you will not only use your vegetables once they’ve grown, but you will also find you have more passion when growing them. 

Having passion for growing your own vegetables is important because it will help you keep your veg growing strong and healthy throughout the entire year. Once you’ve picked your veg, remember to use high quality seeds, like the ones that you can find in our kits. This increases the chances of your seeds germinating and turning into a lovely harvest.
