Blueberries starting to ripen

It may seem like we have moved past the time of foraging for our food but if we think about it we have just swapped one type of foraging for another.  Of course a lot has changed since then with us foraging for our food in supermarkets and fast food stores instead of the wonderful outdoors.  Why not bring a bit of foraging back into your life by planting some fruiting berries in your garden.  You won’t find a better reward than feasting on succulent and tasty berries whilst strolling through your garden after a hard days work.  Not sure what they need?  Have a look at our article on growing your own berries this summer.
