Grow your own fruit and veg without spending a penny.

Huw Richards wants us all to grow our own fruit and vegetables, and shows us that we don't need much money (or even our own garden) to do so.

Can't afford a raised bed? Try repurposing an old wooden pallet. Don't have money to buy lots of different seeds? Look in your kitchen cupboards for food that you can plant. Don't have a garden? See if there is anyone in your local community that will let you grow veg in their garden. Whatever you are worried about, there will be a low-cost way of overcoming it.

Huw gives advice on how to find a suitable site, produce compost, make your own tools, and source your first seeds for free. He also recommends his favourite low-maintenance, high-yield crops, providing key plant maintenance instructions, and even how to propagate or save seed.

Discover how you can barter, borrow, repurpose, and propagate your way to a bountiful harvest of fruit and vegetables without burdening your bank balance.
