Preparing your garden for winter


gardeningDo you have green fingers? If so, it might be a good idea to brave the elements and do some work in your garden now - to ensure you can enjoy it in all its beauty next year.

A recent survey showed that most families don't plan to protect their garden from the cold this winter, as most of us just can't be bothered!

A lot of people also said they don't have the time or the money to put the work in. But celebrity gardener David Domeney said you will in fact save on both if you prepare your garden properly and in time for the winter months.

One in five gardeners even admit, with hindsight, that they always end up working much harder in spring than they would have had to in the autumn.

So put your wellies on now, or you will be faced with a lot of hard work before your garden looks nice again in the spring.
