RHS grow fruit and veg by phone

The RHS have just launched a free innovative RHS Grow Your Own iphone app at http://www.rhs.org.uk/iphone

This is part of an excellent on-line campaign to encourage Grow Your Own in 2010.The aim is to build a UK map showing where people are growing their own produce and to find out what crops are most popular.

15,ooo individuals have already pledged to grow crops this summer which is pretty impressive .They are also encouraging companies to get involved which I think is a particularly interesting idea. Many organisations have outside spaces and roof areas where employees could be allowed to grow a few veggies and engage in healthy gardening actvities in their lunch hours. This has to be an improvement on grabbing a sandwichwhilst working at a desk top computer which I often do now I am working in London.

I have just pledged to grow tomatos, beans, courgettes, salad and strawberries in 2010 – better get out there and do some seed planting rather than just looking at the pretty packets !

I am not an experienced gardener - more of an enthusiastic amateur who learns by trial and error and is keen to "manage" the effects of the weather on my garden. Writing this blog is my passion and I hope that it will continue to grow, allowing global gardeners to communicate about the effects of climate change on our plants and the future of our gardens.
