Grow a ‘green’ food garden with a MayFord Pop-Up Veggie Garden.

Manufactured from discarded signage fabric, the Pop-Up Veggie Garden uses vegetable inks and invasive wattle stakes. They take up less than a metre (750mm x 750mm, and 300mm high) in sunny spot in your garden.

* Place on soil with good drainage. No need to dig!

* Line the Pop-Up Veggie Garden with an organic insulation layer such as newspaper or greens.

* Mix in potting soil and compost.

* Add a top layer of seedling soil.

* Sow seeds and keep them moist.

The Pop-Up Veggie Garden is colourful and easy to move. Available from MayFord or your local garden centre.
