Allotments in pots
Grow tasty veg and herb combos – Alex Mitchell shows you how
Big harvests can come from small spaces, as lots of delicious vegetables grow well in pots. Many look very ornamental too, so if you plant them in a stylish container, they deserve pride of place.

These five simple container combinations not only look beautiful but will grow well together and double your harvest.
