Everything you need to know about growing grafted vegetables

If you want to grow your own vegetables, grafted plants are the most reliable way to get consistent, reliable crops right through the season.

Whether you are growing vegetables for the first time or are a seasoned gardener, choosing grafted vegetable plants instead of seeds or seed-raised plants will dramatically improve your results. As you experience greater success, you’ll discover for yourself that grafted vegetables offer far better value for money than their cheaper non-grafted equivalents. They’re actually more environmentally friendly too!

GraftedVeg.com explains the difference between grafted and non-grafted plants and guides you through the fabulous range of varieties available for you to grow, as well as offering growing advice to help you get the very best out of your plants.

Grow grafted and look forward to a season-long supply of fresh, tasty, healthy produce!

Why Grafted is greener

Natural health Because grafted vegetable plants have stronger natural defences to pests and diseases, they grow successfully with less chemical intervention compared to non-grafted plants.

From the commercial nursery where they start life to your own garden, fewer pesticides are needed to keep them in tip-top condition. This means less soil pollution and cleaner, purer food for your table.


Why grafted plants are better

Easier, healthier and better value Grafted vegetable plants are significantly stronger than their non-grafted equivalents. Easier and more reliable to grow, they produce a lot more fruit of a consistently better quality, right through the season. They are also ready to harvest earlier, so you can start enjoying home-grown food sooner. Whatever your level of gardening skill, grafted vegetables are your best bet by far for an impressive, abundant crop.
