    Winter vegetables to grow in your garden

    Published on 13 June 2013, Thursday, 5:01 AM

    Are you the sort of person that loves a bit of garden DIY and enjoys getting their hands dirty growing their own fresh fruits and vegetables?

    Just because summer is over is no reason to put away your hoe and gardening spade - after all, there are many great winter vegetables that grow beautifully at this time of year!

    For example, you might want to try growing your very own broccoli, carrots, lettuce and asparagus while the weather is cold.

    If you are feeling particularly tired and fatigued this winter it might not just be the conditions getting you down - you might be low on iron.

    If that is the case, why not try growing some fresh spinach in your garden? Dark green leafy vegetables are usually high in iron, and this might just be the nutrient that your body needs.

    However it's important to note that ensuring the success of your winter vegetables requires a little bit of tact and clever thinking.

    All plants need sunlight in order to grow - which can often be scarce during winter - so you will likely need to position your vegetable garden carefully to ensure it is getting enough sun.

    It might require a bit of garden landscaping in order to get results, however the delicious fresh produce will be well worth the hard work.
