Plan ahead with bulbs

One of the great things about gardening is being able to look into the future with enthusiasm, and part of that is planting now for next spring. A gardener knows, when handling papery brown bulbs, that these insignificant little things will produce early

Create colourful containers

If the budget’s tight or your plot is tiny, potting up a large container will make much more of an impact. It has to be rugged, either frost-proof terracotta, wood or stone, to withstand hard weather. Your compost has to be equally meaty and should conta
