In October 2017, I had the pleasure of meeting Matthew Oliver, the man behind the 1,498.4lb UK Outdoor Grown Record Breaking Pumpkin. As you will already know if you read my Happy National Pumpkin Day blog all about the visit, Matt is also the lucky guy responsible for the new Global Growth Veg Garden at RHS Hyde Hall in Essex.
Whilst I was there I took the opportunity to ask him everything you need to know about the new Veg Garden which opened in the Summer last year. Including the story behind the layout, the journey of its development and the trials and successes so far. I was very keen to get a few tips and ideas out of Matt which I could share with you too, such as new unusual crops you wouldn’t normally think you can grow in the UK and also some surprisingly edible plants too.

I will be bringing lots more interviews to you this year, so please comment below and let me know who in particular you would like me to put in front of the camera. Also, what you would like me to ask.
It’s all about creating content that helps, inspires, and ultimately that both you and I love.
Have a wonderful week x
