    Default New place, what to have

    So, I'm now in a different place and sadly the garden is small, north facing and surrounded by high fences and walls.
    What can i plant, I'l love to get some veg in somewhere.
    I have a yard at the front facing south and I thought about using one of my planters for tomatoes but dunno what to put in the other.
    I also have my home made cold frame to utilise.

    All help very welcomed

    Welcome back Paul although under sad circumstances. Any chance of you getting an allotment?

    Thankyou

    I'm not sure where the nearest ones are as I'm in a new county!
    I think for starters I'll just stick with the garden for now as I also walk a lot now my spare time is a little more divided

    I think you may struggle with a north facing garden plus having high fences and walls doesn't help.

    There's plenty of stuff that's not bothered about too much sun though. Also if you can get stuff that scrambles up like peas and beans they will hopefully have their heads in the sun! Cover the walls in climbers. Parts of my garden never get sun at all but I shove stuff in those spots anyway with varying degrees of success!

    You can hang some pots to fence and grow enough toms from hanging baskets, as one of our grapes is very successful with that.
