Grow Your Own by Angus Stewart and Simon Leake (Signed Copy)

Angus has been our go-to guru for all things gardening for some time and we are stoked about our ‘growing relationship’! 
We highly reccommend his book on urban farming to all you podders out there. 
Keep an eye out for the mentions of Vegepod! 
Book description:
Grow Your Own provides simple step-by-step methods and information enabling the average city dweller to grow food plants at whatever scale their time and resources permit and no matter their location, be it suburban backyard or apartment balcony. Some of the many topics covered include creating the best environment for growing (influenced by water/temperature/light/air quality), setting up the soil; fertilisers, compost and worm farms; choosing crops (annual/perennial/heirloom/modern); propagation, planting and maintenance; pest and disease management; seed saving; rooftop spaces and vertical gardens; and integrated urban farming including bees and poultry.

Container Gardening

An easy to manage contained gardening bed is perfect for the home. Control your growth and veggie quality in a separate environment away from the ground.

Self Watering

Veggie health is ensured with our self-watering technology by using a wicking system and watering the plants from below. Plants can last weeks without watering in our Vegepods.

Protective Cover

A greenhouse in our backyard - a polyethylene knitted mesh protects crops from UV and pests. The cover also helps manage temperature by allowing water and air to penetrate.
