I am hoping to begin growing some veg in my small garden - specifically kale, spinach, beetroot, carrots, broccoli (ordinary & purple sprouting) plus a few other things. I am a juicer and I want to try and grow some of my own produce organically as I am worried about pesticides etc.
My questions are these: is okay to grow from conventional seeds rather than pay for organic ones? I don't want any GMO seeds or anything like that and I don't know if the horror stories I hear from The US apply here in respect of GM seeds, so if anyone can put my mind at rest I'd be really pleased.
Secondly, I have a tiny garden with a small (8ft by 4ft) veg patch, can I grow any of the crops in containers or pots? If so is there any specific techniques or advice I should follow?
Thanks for you help - I look forward to any replies.
