You may decide to grow a wider range of vegetables – bear in mind that this will require little planning, more time during the growing season, and some self-control.
Here are just a few different vegetables that are suitable to grow in a small garden.
Peas and Mange-touts
SweetcornSweetcorn is a great crop to grow alongside peas and bean, and it usually matures just as their season is coming to an end. It is an attractive plant and will enhance any vegetable plot at the same time as producing delicious succulent corn cobs in late summer and early autumn.
Onions, Shallots and Garlic
Shallots are also simple too grow. Plant as individual bulbs, about 15cm apart, just below the surface, leaving the tip showing. By the time the foliage has died down in July or August they will have multiplied to produce a cluster of shallots.
Garlic is a crop that can be tucked in at the edge of the plot where there is not room to grow anything else. Garlic is one of the most under demanding vegetables to grow, especially on sandy, well drained soils.
