Flex your green fingers for National Gardening Week!

This week (14th – 20th April) is National Gardening Week 2014 – the country’s biggest celebration of gardening, organised by the Royal Horticultural Society.

It’s a great opportunity to get out in the garden, embrace the great outdoors and start sowing and planting seeds, flowers, trees, plants, herbs, vegetables and fruits. Thousands of people, public gardens, charities, shops and heritage organisations are getting involved and have plenty of events and activities taking place up and down the country. There are beginner’s workshops, walking guides, garden parties, planting groups and grow your own sessions – so there’s something for everyone.

With the lovely sunshine predicted to stay for a few weeks, now is a great time to start growing your own so have a look at our Seed Pantry product range on the website for planting inspiration.

There are competitions running online, on Facebook and Twitter to win some great gardening goodies so for more information visit: National Gardening Week 

Also, The Big Allotment Challenge starts on BBC2 at 8pm tonight (14th April) so why not tune in for ideas and tips and to get in the gardening spirit!
