Spring has arrived and it’s the perfect time to put those veggie patch dreams into actions.

We caught up with Gardener Gav to chat about what you need to know when planning your veggie patch this spring to get the most out of your hard work and have you cooking what you grow in no time!

Plant Your Favourite Veggies

If you don’t want to eat what you’ve planted, you’ll end up with produce that goes to waste or you don’t enjoy!

The number 1 rule to consider when planning what to plant is grow what you enjoy eating.

2 of Each is Enough

Same general rule of thumb as above, if you plant too many – you’ll end up with wastage of your hard earned fresh produce.

Gav suggests planting 2 of each plant you want to grow, if you find that’s not enough in future then go ahead and plant more but to start off with – 2 is enough!

Know Your Pests

Consider what pests are prone to attack your veggies – do your research and prepare to protect them before they become a threat.

For instance, if you know the local wildlife is going to enjoy your tomatoes, have some netting set up to protect them in advance.

Just some simple googling will go a long way in protecting your patch in the long term!
