Growing veg is easy if you know which common mistakes to avoid. But it can be disappointing your lovingly planted seeds don’t turn into tasty vegetables. So if you’ve been discouraged when your beans, salads, carrots and courgettes failed to come up, then this is the video for you. I’ve made every major mistake when growing veg – but you don’t have to! Watch this before planting your first seeds and improve your home harvest.
