How Does Your Garden Grow - Featured May Garden


Muriel from Greystones in Co.Wicklow is this months featured garden. It's great to see such a variety of plants and produce growing in a small garden and it's obvious that Muriel and her family get great use and enjoyment from their garden. We hope you enjoy spending your €50 voucher for Fruit Hill Farm and that your potatoes produce a good yield!

My name is Muriel, I live in Greystones.  I have a fairly small garden with one single raised bed, it is south facing but overshadowed by a high wall. Despite the lack of ideal conditions, I still manage to grow a fair amount of produce.  In summer I grow courgettes, peas, lettuces,radishes and climbing beans.  At the moment I have a bountiful of sprouting broccoli and my first early potatoes are in the ground and growing well, I also planted potatoes in potato grow bag and they seem to be better looking plants than the ones in the raised bed, I will have to wait for the harvest to compare the yield.  I planted sunflowers in the raised bed this year to bring a nice splash of colour and to attract wildlife.  Since last year I have been growing oca tubers in grow bags, they are easy to grow and taste delicious.  I find gardening and eating my produce a constant pleasure and very much enjoy instilling that love to my young children.
