February is a great time to start growing fruit and vegetables in your garden! 🍓🥕
Why not ask if you can use a little patch of the garden to sow and grow you're own fruit and veg? Or, if you haven't got any outside space, you can even use old egg cartons! Every day you'll be able to watch it grow and hopefully have something nice to eat at the end of it!
February is a great month to sow:
You can pick up seeds from your local garden centre or shop but don't worry if you haven't got one nearby, you can actually grow things using the seeds from fruits and vegetables you already have at home!
Very ripe tomatoes 🍅 peppers 🌶 and strawberries 🍓 have seeds on or in them that can be scrapped off and sown.
By the time the summer is here you'll have a nice bowl full of things to munch on with your summer salads! 😎
Whether you're growing in the garden or an egg carton, make sure your soil isn't frozen or waterlogged. Keep an eye on it every day and water it as instructed on your seed packet or as and when the soil appears to be getting dry if you're making it from seeds you already have.
If you're using an egg carton, you might need to re-pot your plants as they get bigger. Plants need room to grow, so once yours look like they're getting too big for the egg carton, just take them very carefully out of the carton and move them over to a plant pot filled with some new soil.
