Overview

There are nine main vitamins we can find in everyday food crops and all of them can be grown at home. Vitamins D and B12 are absorbed through sunlight, and in meat and dairy products, so unless you are keeping your own hens, some vitamins may have to be 'bought' in - although that still doesn't mean hitting the pill bottles... buy organic fresh produce as far as possible and grow the rest of the vitamins you and your family need.

This handy digital copy of Garden Vitamins highlights 28 different fruits and vegetables you can grow at home and collect 9 valuable vitamins to keep your family healthy and well-fed.

All these popular fruits and vegetables have brief but concise growing instructions and are categorized by vitamin so you know exactly what you're getting from your new hobby!
