A month-by-month guide to growing your own food in just one raised bed
Grow vegetables and herbs all year round in just one raised bed - it's that simple!
All you need is one raised bed to grow an abundance of food. For keen gardeners starting from scratch, best-selling gardening author and YouTuber Huw Richards first shows you how to build your raised bed on a budget before introducing other elements key to your growing success, such as planning for frost and making your own compost.
Once you're set up, it's time to start growing. Month by month, illustrated raised bed plans show you what to sow, plant and harvest. Know which crops to start off from seed or which to plant direct, and then look after your seedlings until ready to harvest. Maintenance checklists throughout the year prompt you to keep on top of small tasks such as watering and watching out for signs of pests and diseases. Once you've had a successful first year, Huw suggests next steps including more veg to grow, herbs, attracting pollinators and looking after your crops using organic homemade feeds.
