The 6 Most Cost-Effective Vegetables to Grow in Your Garden

Use this handy Vegetable Cheat Sheet as your guide

Growing your own vegetables can be a great way to help the environment and also save some pennies.

Another bonus is that it means you won’t have to rely on supermarkets and shops to get your veg intake, which will come in handy if there’s a shortage in national production, as has been predicted this summer.

But where to start? Anglian Home Improvements has created a handy A-Z Vegetable Cheat Sheet all about the best ways to grow your own veggies.

The 6 most cost-effective vegetables to grow in your garden

Here are the top vegetables to grow at home if you're looking to save some cash, according to Anglian Home Improvements.

1. Curly kale

Taking the top spot is curly kale, which is healthy, low in calories and a versatile cooking ingredient. A packet of seeds only costs £1 and it takes a speedy six weeks to grow. Comparing this to supermarket costs, it's clear to see how growing your own is a bargain.
