GROW YOUR OWN GREAT VEG

Ever wanted to grow your own great tasting, super-fresh vegetables and herbs, but never quite managed it? The solution is simple: the unique ‘Grow Your Own with Pippa Greenwood’ system.
  • Choose the vegetables you would like to grow from the range on offer (all tasty good-performing favourites of mine!)
  • The plants, all specially grown for me in Lincolnshire, UK, will be sent out to you as really good-sized garden-ready plants and at a perfect time for planting (approx early to mid-May)
  • Each week I'll email you outlining all you need to do with your chosen crops - starting with soil preparation and pre-planting advice and guiding you right through from planting to the best ways to harvest for maximum yield and best quality. Advice includes feeding, watering, staking/supporting, pinching out, thinning and of course, pest, disease and problem warnings and advice... and maybe the occasional recipe!
  • These unique emails are tailor-made to your chosen crops and as I grow the entire range myself too, I know what is really happening each week
  • This all makes veg growing easy, fun and more productive and many customers sign up year after year as it is very good value too!

I would recommend anyone to have a go at growing their own vegetables. If you’ve never tried grow your own, then be brave and give it a go! It is much easier than you might think to grow your own vegetables, especially if you start with a bit of help from me. My ‘Grow Your Own with Pippa Greenwood’ concept was born out of my determination to help people to have fun growing their own vegetables and get the luscious, tasty crops they deserve.


All too often people try their hand at something (and that’s me included!) and because there is not enough help and information to hand, the results they get just aren’t good enough for them to try again. Now I may be an experienced veg grower, but I do know what it is like trying to get to grips with something new, and many of my friends are either non-gardeners or garden but have never had much success with Grow Your Own. So, rather than leave people struggling and often not succeeding, I offer the opportunity for you to have ‘at your elbow’ advice from me emailed on a weekly basis. This, combined with the top-quality garden-ready plants we offer, make it easy to succeed and Grow Your Own Great Vegetables. The advice you receive about the veg you have chosen is ONLY about those crops you’ve selected, not about all the veg I offer in my ‘Grow Your Own with Pippa Greenwood’ system. Result? No need to waste time trawling through irrelevant information, just everything you need ! Plus great results with Grow Your Own Veg, even if it is the first time you’ve tried!

I tried out the idea on a set of ‘guineapigs’ before making it widely available. They had not grown their own veg before, or had tried and failed, and I chose them from all parts of the country, Aberdeen southwards, so that I could be sure the weekly advice emails they received were suitable and helpful, wherever they lived. The outcome was brilliant, they all became hooked on Grow Your Own !I’ve priced the packages very carefully, so if you compare our prices with the plants from one of the well-known nurseries, they are pretty similar BUT with me you get a whole season’s set of veg-specific, at-your elbow advice emails too……….it’s almost like having me there in your own garden!
