Growing your own fruit and vegetables
My green fingered guide to growing your own fruit and vegetables

The price of food is going up faster than most of our other bills. Figures published this week from the Office For National Statistics show that in the 12 months to January, prices rose by 16.8 per cent.

Add to that the news that Tesco, Asda, Aldi and Morrisons are rationing some fruit and veg due to lack of supplies and there has never been a better time to grow your own. And to help you on your way, the Mail has organised a bumper crop of offers so be sure to make the most of the coupons on the left of this page. You’ll save more than £100.

I only have a patio but I have pots of mint and chives and I’m planning on planting more herbs and, perhaps, some climbing vegetables and fruit up a trellis. You can grow French beans, peas, nasturtium flowers and strawberries this way.
