Are you a gardening beginner?


There are loads of really simple plants and vegetables you can grow, even if you don’t have a garden. Sunflowers, sweet peas or runner beans are just three plants that you can grow in pots. Old Trafford’s houses and flats usually have a small amount of outdoor space but we can make the most of them. If you have never grown plants before then maybe you need a little bit of advice to get you going.

  1. If you have plants in pots outdoors here’s some advice from GroundWorks Manchester who project managed the WonderWall Alleys refurbishment in Old Trafford in October 2016. I

2. Next Steps
