Mary Cook says: “Don’t give up. Our first year of growing we had a late frost that killed nearly all of my seedlings (early June). At that point I would usually have packed up and thought it was too difficult. I didn’t though. Just potted more seeds and had a great year. There are always going to be things that work or seemingly disastrous events that occur, it’s the nature or nature, and life in general. But keep on, try something new, listen to advice and use it where needed.”
@C_Veggie says: “Cut-and-come-again salad crops are very easy to grow in containers or a small makeshift raised bed. I will even grow salads and maybe kale plants in my flower borders this year. It’ll look good and give you some yummy veg.”
Mabel Samuel says: “Grow things you love to eat and things that are more expensive in the shops. Sow only a few of each. Don’t sow too soon. Cold is a killer. Later sown crops soon catch up. Have fun!”
