Looking back over the year of edible growing at The Hidden Gardens

As ever, we have had an interesting season growing some of our old favourites such as wee ‘Sungold’ tomatoes and juicy cucumbers, as well as trying out some unusual varieties, trialling veg to see if they like our Glasgow climate, and giving everything the taste test.

Highlights have been eating grapes straight off the vine in October, cooking sweet potatoes at our shared volunteer session, and trialling heritage lettuce varieties as part of a ‘Garden Organic’ members experiment.

We are very pleased with our dahlia tubers, but they are looking so cheery at the moment that we haven’t had the heart to dig them up and eat them, so can’t comment on eating value!
