The start-up company sells everything to get growing, with seasonal recipes for everything grown. A subscription service provides the plants needed for the recipes, which are delivered on a monthly basis. It is the brainchild of former corporate executive Jet Cooke.

She said: "This kit is designed for money-rich, time-poor people to grow just the right amount for specific recipes. It gives everything the novice gardener needs and takes out so much of the complication."

Kernock Park Plants is supplying 25 varieties of plant material. The package includes two beds, planting soil, plugs, feeds, schedules and recipes and costs £197.90. The subscription costs £24.99 a month and includes two recipes. A children's version is also available.
