Q.Growing vegetables on my balcony
This is my first time on Gardening Know How. I live in a flat in London, and I have always used my balcony for growing flowers. Last year I grew strawberries, tomatoes and a cucumber plant. I never thought about growing vegetables before. I really enjoyed it. I want to plant more this year. I have sown beans and peas indoors; they are just starting to come up. Are there any other veg. seeds I can sow indoors? I’m going to try planting herbs too.

I will let you know how I get on.
Good for you - starting to go green! Food to table is the way to go( as often as possible). I havc started many types of vegetables from seed indoors. Peas are easy as are carrots. You amy want to purchase a seed starter kit and/ or a germination station that comes with a heating pad.
