Get Gardening

With Spring officially starting next week thoughts are quickly turning to the garden.

Whether you have a small plot, a large estate or simply a window box there’s ideas for everyone in our “get gardening” blog below

#1 Get Chitting

Now is the time of year to start your potatoes off by “chitting” them inside. Check out this video from Gardeners World.

#2 Plant a Spring Container

You may have noticed the supermarkets filling up with lovely spring flowers ready to transplant into pots. Why not grab a few when you are next out and make a lovely display for outside your front door and if you haven’t got a pot don’t fear, wellie boots look just as good.
