Being more money savvy and making savings wherever possible has become extremely important with the rise of the cost of living in the UK. More and more people are looking for ways to cut back on their food bill but more importantly, doing so without eating unhealthily. Growing vegetables is just one way for you to do just that.
One of the most effective ways to do this and one which has numerous benefits is growing vegetables and fruits in your own garden. Of course there is the obvious benefit of the on-going cost saving which can add up to a huge amount over the months and years to continue to harvest your own foods. But growing vegetables also encourages a healthier lifestyle, allows children to learn about the process of growing food and ensures you and your family are eating fresh fruit and veg with no added chemicals.
What's more, it's also extremely satisfying to harvest your own fruit and veg before cooking them and enjoying a beautiful meal that you have not only prepared but grown yourself too!
To help you get started with growing your own, we've put together a handy and simple infographic to give you some ideas of the types of fruit and veg you can grow in your own garden and also simple steps on how to do just that!
