Making a start
- Tomatoes (smaller climbing varieties can be trained to climb trellis or arch and look beautiful)
- Peppers (bell, jalapeno etc.)
- Carrots (round ones do well in pots)
- Potatoes (seed tubers, plant and top up with compost as they grow)
- Mushrooms (dark spot needed – buy prepared special compost with mushroom spawn and keep at around 50-60 degrees)
- Peas and beans (dwarf varieties and mange tout can be used)
- Herbs (basil, chives, coriander, dill, parsley, fennel, mint, to name a few)
