Garden centre offers tips on growing your own food during the recession

Gardeners who are keen to beat the recession will be able to pick up advice about how to grow their own vegetables during a special event at a garden centre near Burnham-On-Sea later this month.

Sanders Garden World at Brent Knoll will be holding a 'Grow Your Own Weekend' on Saturday March 28th and Sunday March 29th when experts will be available to provide advice on how to sow vegetable seeds and grow food.

The centre's manager, Peter Burks, told "From what our customers are telling us they are looking to produce their own vegetables from their allotments, gardens and patios to help with the costs of their food bills during the current economic climate."

"We hope as many people as possible come along and join us for this informative weekend, which will be dedicated to learning how to successfully grow your own vegetables. Representatives from Burnham-On-Sea Allotment Association will be attending both days from 10am until 4pm."

"The allotment representatives will be on hand to help people with choosing seeds, plants and equipment, and will also offer ideas on how to get the very best from your vegetable patch."
