The green area beyond the back door is perhaps one of the most valuable assets we have, and it’s time to make the most of it.
You can enjoy a beautiful garden in the winter too. The days may be short and the light poor, but colourful shrubs, trees, bulbs and other plants can liven the dreary winter landscape. To check out the information on The Garden In Winter and start planning and planting now, go to Garden Tips.
And to help you get the most from your garden there are gardening classes and events happening all around the country. Check out our events diary to find out what's happening near you.
Discover the pleasure of gardening by checking out our Garden Tips, where you will find lots of ideas to help make the most of your outdoor space, however big or small at all times of the year.
