Grown your own Ladies' Finger
Find the sunniest spot
Ladies' fingers grow best in full, hot sun.
Fertilise the soil thoroughly
Till the soil to a depth of 12 inches and spread 10 inches of fertiliser or compost at the bottom.
Let it grow
Sow seeds half inch deep and 4 inches apart. Cover the seeds with soil and pat lightly. The soil does not need to be firm over the seeds.
Beat the summer
Water every morning and try not to get water on the leaves. Ladies' fingers grow best when sufficiently watered.
Grow your own Spinach
Choose a sunny spot
Spinach does not do well in extremely hot temperatures, yet it does like the sun.
Make sure your soil drains well and fertilise it thoroughly
Mix organic fertiliser into soil to ensure adequate richness.
Let it grow
Spinach does not grow extremely deep roots and can be grown in a small pot.
Sow seeds half inch deep and 2 inches apart
Cover the seeds with soil and pat lightly. The soil does not need to be firm over the seeds. Beat the summer
Use a shade to keep the soil cool when the temperatures begin to heat up. Also sow extra seeds and water twice daily.
While watering, be gentle and use a watering can or a light shower setting on your hose as too much force can disturb the newly planted seeds and even wash them away.
