Growing your own food - with Monty Don


What’s the secret to success with veg growing? Monty Don shares his tips for great tasting, healthy fruit and veg – and why your best-ever veg year starts not in the new year, but here in autumn. With just a little planning, you can look forward to year-round fresh and healthy harvests

We caught up with Monty as he was in peak harvest season at Longmeadow – and heard how his veg plot is at the heart of family cooking.

He shares why growing food gives him so much pleasure, the tricks he uses to ensure a steady flow of harvests, and why his sowing choices start at the kitchen table.

He also reveals why things still go wrong on his plot – and how learning from mistakes rather than striving for perfection are often the best way to improve your veg growing, and tackles the common mistakes that most beginner gardeners make when starting out growing veg.
