Small Vegetable Garden (Autumn Winter) (discontinued)


Out of stock

This is such a good garden to get you started with growing your own over the winter months. You get a wide selection of really healthy greens, with cabbages and kales as well as some fun Chinese leaves that are just the ticket for stir fries. All the winter favourites are in there too, with spinach, a packet of broad bean seeds (everything else in the garden comes as a baby plant) and calabrese broccoli, and you can enjoy some more unusual leaves for winter salads as well.

If you’ve got a couple of raised beds in your garden, or a smaller veg area with space for some extra pots and containers then this will do you very well indeed.

Get your seedlings ready to plant...

When your plants arrive, they will need to be unpacked and watered before they are ready to plant. Follow our three step guide below:

1. Unpack your plants

As soon as possible after your plants arrive, carefully unpack them all. Most plants will be carefully laid in labelled punnets. Some may look a little tired after their journey but this is nothing to worry about.

2. Give them a drink

The roots may be dry, so give them all a good drink of water by standing the plants upright and submerging the roots for a few minutes in a container of clean water. We’d recommend doing this punnet by punnet so that you don’t get the plants muddled up.

3. Pop them back in their punnets

Once the roots are sufficiently moist, stand the plants up in their punnet – it is sensible to keep the labelled sleeve with the punnet so that you can easily identify the seedlings when you are ready to plant them.

At this point you can either plant them if your garden is ready, or if you need to wait a few days you can add a few handfuls of compost to cover the roots in the punnet and keep them on a windowsill or in a greenhouse. More info on that is here.

3 steps to success...

When you’re ready to plant your Rocket Garden there’s a very simple 3 step process to planting them; whether you’re planting in pots, containers, grow bags, raised beds or straight into the ground.

dig a hole

1. Dig a hole

Using a trowel or a dibber (basically a pointed stick) make a hole big enough in the soil to fit the roots of your baby plant and ideally sprinkle in a handful of wormcast fertiliser. This will give your plants a great start in their new home and help to feed them throughout the growing season.

2. Pop the plant in

Carefully place the plant into the hole, making sure it is standing upright.

cover with soil

3. Fill the hole with soil

Cover up the roots of the plant using some of the soil you took out to make the hole, allowing the leaves or green shoots of the plant to remain out in the open. Then firm the soil around the base of the plant with your hands.
