Help, advice needed. Starting my own veggie garden, UK weather/seasons. Starting to prep.
Hi everyone need some advice about starting a veg garden, UK weather/seasons.

Post links or post advice all welcome. What veg or and fruits to plant that will last and keep my family going during rough times.

Also please what soil is best to buy and how much space etc is needed for say potatoes.

Going to start prepping this year, feel something in the air.

Also am going to start getting used to living wild, start with 2 nights in the woods get my skills built up. So any advice on this would be great.

I can start fires the old way but damn it was harder than i thought.

On eating wild animals near me there is only field bloody mice, anyone know anything about what plants are good to eat wild UK?.

Thanks everyone
Dave.

My only advice is don't grow tomato plants, as the constant whipping them in and out will likely result in them getting whiplash. Also don't grow weed, cos that's illegal, and its not really a vegetable, no matter what some people might say.

Dont buy soil work with the soil you already have by adding your own compost. Also find a really good source of horse manure that has come from a place that doesnt spray roundup or that other chemical (name escapes me) to get rid of ragwort as it mutuates your veg and cant be got rid of out the soild for about a decade. Always ask your source what they put on their fields.

I learnt how to grow from youtube and from what i call an old codgers forum especially for growers in the UK.

Dont take much notice of RSHS as they arent as good as the old codgers who are tried and tested

Good luck

don't forget to look into sprouting.

there are tons of different types of sprouts that can be grown indoors, with little effort, and they pack tons of nutrients!

alfalfa is a super food and is extremely easy to sprout.

Hi Op, I can't add to your thread but I was hoping someone may be able to give me some advice too.

I am planning on my first garden this spring but the area I have to work with is in the backyard and low light. Maybe 2 hours direct sunlight a day, the rest is in the shade.

Does anyone know of a good vegetable(s) I can plant that would grow in less sunlight conditions?

Start digging and turning the soil over. Feb/march is the time to prepare the soil for planting. dig and turn over the soil to loosen roughly 6 to 10 inches of the topsoil. As luck would have it, our weather is perfect at the moment, as its drying things ot nicely - much easier than turning over thick mud.

Get a compost heap underway, for natural fertilizer. You will have plenty of bio material from your garden later but you could add a few bags of good compost to your topsoil for this year.

Plant marigolds between your veggie plants.

They are a natural way of discouraging insects and worms.

A good Garden need Preparation,
i would upgrade the Soil first and this need min. two Seasons
for the creation of a good Soil Climate!


Look for Sprouts because they are relative easy to grow
but need Attention too, you get a Feeling for Plants!
We started with them after F'Shima and we didn't bought
much Vegetables in the last 2 Years!
And was very, very cheap, we bought for ca. 150 UK Pounds
and got good Material.

I had some Friends in South England and they told me a lot
about their Networks where they share their Products,
i am sure they still exist!
