Ever tried to grow your own but didn't know where to start?

I did about 6 months ago and had to figure it out as we went along. However that’s all changed with the new iPhone app from the BTCV. In their own words:

“The BTCV app allows you to calculate how much food you could grow in your garden – and how much cash it could save you. Packed full of tips and advice, this app not only helps you to get growing your own fruit and veg but also tells you how many food miles you could be saving. There’s even a collection of celebrity recipes to help you decide what to do with all your home grown goodies. BTCV is the UK’s leading environmental volunteering charity.”

Saving money and living greener sounds very Asda too. We downloaded it and tried it out on the Walker-Palin allotment – it is brilliant. Definitely worth a free download, even if just to get the great recipes. Well done to the BTCV for yet another great innovation.

HOT OFF THE PRESS: Our Christmas card recycling this December will again support the BTCV and go towards helping schools with their environmental programmes. Watch this space for more details soon.
