FAQs

Take a look at some of the frequently asked questions we receive from those looking to buy garden products in the UK. You can contact our Customer Service Team or browse our general FAQs for further advice.

What should I do first in the garden?

The first thing a gardener should do is prepare the soil. That usually begins with adding healthy, biologically active compost. If you don't have access to that, learn how to make it. Or you can just add organic mulch materials such as fallen leaves, wood chips, rotted manure, etc.

How to grow potatoes?

We go to great lengths at Marshalls to make sure our seed potatoes are of the finest quality, giving you the best possible chance of a great harvest. We'd go as far as to say the hardest part about growing potatoes is deciding which varieties to try! After that, the process of planting, caring for and harvesting is relatively straight-forward... but if you do need a helping hand, read our potato growing guide here.

How to grow tomatoes?

You can't beat the taste of your own tomatoes, picked still warm from the sun and eaten fresh. Growing tomatoes is easy, and there are varieties suitable for greenhouses, for pots on sunny patios and even for window boxes. Read our guide on how to grow your own tomatoes here.

How to grow strawberries?

This ever-popular classic British fruit has a sweet taste that’s loved by young and old. Home-grown strawberries are tastier, healthier and much better value than shop-bought fruit, plus they’re easy to grow. The whole family can enjoy seeing the fruit appear in containers, in the ground and even hanging baskets. Read more about growing your own strawberries here.
