Growing Your Own

Whether you have a garden, a patio or a windowsill, you can grow your own delicious fresh vegetables. Fast-maturing crops make decorative displays in pots and look fabulous when combined with flowers, while a potager-style plot brimming with ornamentals and edibles is ideal for a small garden. Use these ideas to inspire your planting, so you can enjoy your vegetables before they even reach your plate.
