    Garden DIY projects can help homeowners grow their own


    Garden DIY projects can help homeowners grow their ownHomeowners can join the 'grow your own' revolution by carrying out a few simple garden DIY projects.

    Kevin Waters, a spokesman for the Garden Works, said that the trend for growing fruit and vegetables at home has kicked off in the last two or three years.

    He suggested that rather than doing it to save money, those who are getting involved in gardening enjoy the sense of achievement they get.

    "It is managing to put potatoes on the Sunday dinner plate that you have grown yourself. It is that experience that people are buying," he explained.

    Building raised beds not only provides a place to grow potatoes, cauliflowers and beetroot, but it can also boost the aesthetic appeal of a garden.

    Keen gardeners could go one step further and build their own greenhouse to grow tomatoes, chillies and herbs, for example.

    Those new to growing their own food could start with a few pots and planters around their garden until they become more confident.
