HLW-HOMELIVING:WEST,Tuesday,March30,20101 Grow your own right at home Growing your own vegetables can be very rewarding and offers great environmental, health and financial benefits. Planting mature vegetables is a quick and easy way to get your own veggie garden started. Mature vegetables are already partially developed and therefore can beagreatwaytomakeuseofan apartment or restricted outdoor area, as they thrive in pots or small beds. Bunnings Warehouse NSW greenlife buyer Bruce Stanley describes how mature vegetables and herbs make growing your own easy and a great way to get you on the path to sustainability. ‘‘Mature vegetables are simple to plant and are the quickest way to start your own vegetable garden,’’ Mr Stanley said. ‘‘Once you plant them, they’ll be ready to harvest in no time. ‘‘T he range of mature vegetables available in store can vary depending on the season. Moving into autumn it’s best to choose vegetables such as cabbage, cauliflower, parsnips, rhubarbs and radishes as these thrive in cooler weather," he said. ❏ How to grow vegies 1: Prepare – Remove weeds and grasses; improve soil by digging in plenty of organic matter such as compost or well-aged manure. 2: Feed – Add professional blood and bone with potash or Dynamic Lifter pellets to the soil before planting. Acidic soils will benefit from the addition of garden lime. 3: Plant – Sow seeds into damp soil and keep them moist while they’re germinating. Plant seedings carefully and water in well.
