Plants need proper conditions to grow well. Create the right conditions for the plants that you want to grow, or only grow the plants that will suit your growing conditions and climate. 

What you produce from your garden will depend on the amount of space that you have. The larger the property the more potential you will have to produce a large variety of crops.

Watching plants grow from seed to harvest and knowing that the armful of vegies and herbs you have just gathered for the evening meal will be on the table within an hour or two of harvest, can be an exciting and satisfying experience. The Fruit, Vegetable and Herbs ebook is a comprehensive guide to growing your own edible harvest and ensuring that you know where your food that you are feeding your family has come from and how it has been handled.

This ebook is just the beginning- the possibilities are endless!
