    Yep - with the help of a proper gardener though lol

    Cherry tomatoes
    Apple tree
    Zucchini
    Parsley
    Corriander
    Salad onions
    Basil
    Peppers - soon
    Rosemary - soon
    Various types of salads
    Raspberries


    Used to have loads more at my Italian grandparents garden but they've passed away now! I miss the fresh beans, tastey cucumbers, peppers and proper tomatoes!


    Very interested in growing garlic now. Is it difficult?

    i grew some tomatoes as a kid they was big and juicy, left them on the conservatory window sill to ripen. I dont like tomatoes though so they didnt really get eaten.

    My garden is paved and I don't want to dig it all up so I've ordered a raised bed and will put weed mat underneath. Potatoes and carrots are easily grown in large containers - you can buy a cheap bucket for instance and just fill it with compost for them.

    Agreed with the slugs, can't stand them. I tried using crushed egg shells around the spinach and salad but it didn't stop them. In the end I just scattered some slug pellets around which has gotten rid of them.
