Trevor takes a closer look at the more unusual fruit and vegetable varieties found in the amazing Jetto’s patch garden.

Trevor’s Top Tips

  • The Drumstick Tree is a lesser-known variety of edible plant. Every aspect of this plant is edible from the leaves to the stems and it tastes great mixed through salads.
  • Don’t be disheartened if at first you don’t succeed, seek out advice and keep trying. Dario has finally had success with growing mangoes after five unsuccessful attempts.
  • Storing your own seeds and cultivating from them is a great skill to learn, joining a gardening group like Jetto’s patch will also allow you to swap seeds with other gardeners.
