James Wong's Homegrown Revolution

James Wong's Homegrown Revolution

Growing fruit and veg your foodie friends will be envious of no matter how much space you've got.
2 minutes


I don't have space to grow what can I do?

Do you have a spare windowsill or window box or outdoor stairs? Perhaps you are looking for a larger space, check out landshare or your local community garden.

I love the idea, but where do I start?

Need some inspiration eh? Well we love James Wong's Homegrown Revolution he's been growing unusual stuff in London - loads of interesting plants on his website.

What about F1 hybrids?

Well, if you like them you'll be tied into buying that seed from that company as you can't get the same crop from seed you save. Heritage varieties and non F1 seeds on the other hand will always come true from the saved seed.

Beware of

Too many seedlings

We say "beware of" but if you have too many seedlings just go straight on to level 2!
