Grow Your Own Veg!!

Monday, 18 August 2008


Are you a family who has always wanted to grow your VERY own vegetables in your Garden?

What has stopped you from doing so in the past?

All you need is a small garden to grow a vegetable patch that will yield you fresh seasonal vegetables all year round!

Mums and Dads, The Afternoon Show's resident Gardener Eugene Higgins is looking for a family to take part in his vegetable patch challenge.

Eugene will equip you with the essential knowledge you need to reap the rewards of your very own vegetable plot. He will come to your home and work with your family to prepare plan and decide what to grow on your patch. And of course alongside Eugene, The Afternoon Show will monitor your vegetable's growth or lack of.

You don't need a big garden or to be blessed with green fingers!

If you simply have an interest in growing your own vegetables and would like some help from The Afternoon Show then we want to hear from you!

Send in your contact details, a few lines about your family, why you would like to grow your own vegetable patch and if possible, a photo of your garden.

You can email Rebecca at or send a letter by post to Rebecca Gaynor at The Afternoon Show, RTE, Donnybrook, Dublin 4.
