Get Set, Grow!

Join us on an exciting journey as we show you how to grow a feast of fruit and vegetables in your garden

Here’s how it works

Our Get Set, Grow! video series explains everything you need to know to prepare, sow, plant and harvest a whole range of delicious crops during the growing season.

Throughout the series of 12 videos, we’ll show you how to nurture the crops you’ve got growing so that you get the best possible harvest. We’ll share plenty of essential tips to help you along the way.

The plan for our plot

The illustration shows what we intend to grow in each part of our plot. There's a logic to what we grow and where we grow it and we’ll explain that during this video series.

Handy tools and equipment

We’ve made a list of all the gardening tools we’ll be using over the growing season as a handy reference. We've included links to the RHS Shop so you can take a closer look or order anything you need, if you like. You may have some of these items already. Remember you don't need to buy everything and you might be able to borrow some tools.

  • Compost – for sowing seeds in pots and modules
  • Pots – 9cm / 1L. Some garden centres offer used pots free of charge; be sure to wash them before use.
  • Modular trays – 3–4cm square modules. You could reuse old yogurt pots, sections of cardboard tube, or plastic food trays instead
  • Labels and pencil or make your own
  • Watering can with a rose attachment or use a plastic milk bottle with holes punched in the lid
  • Garden spade
  • Garden fork
  • Trowel and hand fork or an old kitchen utensil

Here’s what we’ll be growing

Everything we’ll be growing on our plot throughout the video series is listed here. Feel free to substitute plants if there's something else that you would prefer to grow.
