1. Prepare your patch
The first thing to do is establish your vegetable patch.
The ideal location is a space at least 3×1.2m in size and is sheltered from the wind yet exposed to sunshine for the majority of the day. If you already grow flowers (or your lawn!) in your potential vegetable patch then it is more than likely a good spot to grow your veg too. Be careful if this space is liable to flood; a well-drained patch is preferred if possible.
