Growing vegetables in a greenhouse will give your seedlings the perfect environment to thrive. A greenhouse is useful for growing vegetables because it will allow you to plant seeds earlier in the season and protect them from garden pests.
If you live in a town house or apartment, it can be inspiring and fun to design a space for a home vegetable garden. With limited space for growing crops, use containers and vertical planting ideas in order to create a unique and versatile garden.
There are still plenty of jobs to do in the garden in January. Checking your plant supports and ties are still in good condition after the winter weather and preparing the greenhouse ready for the growing season are a great reason to get out into the garden.
Winter should not put you off enjoying the beauty of plants. Bring the outdoors in with a floral winter centrepiece. You can buy ready made displays or get creative and combine your favourite winter bloomers in a decorative container
There is still plenty to do in the December garden and as we approach the shortest day of the year, the weather can be quite crisp and chilly. Time to wrap up warm and prepare to prune and prep the garden for next Spring.
Winter can be challenging for wildlife, with food sources and shelter to protect against the harsh winter weather in short supply. Adding plants which sustain wildlife through these demanding months will both benefit birds and insects and create an inviting view to your garden.
Halloween is a great time to really have some fun with your garden. Get creative decorating the front of your house for trick-or-treaters. Having a theme will achieve a festive and inviting entrance. Incorporating seasonal plants into your design will create a stunning and unique entrance.
As summer begins to fade, bring some garden cheer into the house by adding seasonal flower displays and centrepieces. Freshen up an empty space or add statement pieces in a celebration of autumn this year.
