Growing food in small spaces on instagram

Hello,

I love the challenge of growing food in our little garden so I decided to blog how it's going on Instagram.

If you fancy having a look I'm at @littleleicestergarden.

But I'd also love to find more people on insta who also like growing food in urban gardens so if you are such a person or know of people you follow drop them here 😊

Thanks!

    Hello Matt and welcome. Do you follow Huw Richards (huwsgarden)? Certainly not a small garden, nor urban, but he did do a book called 'Veg in One Bed' which would be relevant to your kind of growing. I have found it really useful. I'm trying to think if there's anyone else I can recommend.

    Thanks, I had a little peep, I don't do Instagram but I was surprised to find I'm registered  :)

    At the minute I'm thinking of getting two different types of blueberry plants, so I'll be keeping an eye on what you post about them.

    Did leave a reply for you about composting, re https://getcomposting.com/en-gb/

    I was bought the book for my last birthday and it's been invaluable! Really amazing resource, it's got me looking at lots of other ideas too so yea, it was the book that started me taking it seriously really.

    Wow, I had no idea. Glad I got the new composter for £10, although a new one on the site is only £16 for us. I did want to get a second water butt though and the prices for those were great too. Great shout thanks!

    Really excited about the Blueberries, we get through alot of them.
