Why Grow Your Own Vegetables From Seeds?
There are many rewards that you can enjoy by growing your own vegetables from seeds. Not only are homegrown vegetables generally tastier and healthier than shop-bought veg, but you can also make significant money savings.
When you buy vegetables from a supermarket, important factors like freshness and growing methods are out of your control. With each passing day after harvesting, they're losing their natural flavour, moisture, and nutritional value.
When you grow your own vegetables from seeds, you know exactly how fresh they are and how you've grown them. This gives you access to vegetables that are as delicious and healthy as possible. Plus, as a spin-off bonus, you're working outdoors and topping up your vitamin D levels!
Another huge advantage of growing your own is the money you can save. Depending on the vegetable, the price of a seed packet can be equal or less than the price of a single vegetable in a shop! So, you'll find that growing your own cuts a considerable chunk off your shopping bills.
