It will show you how there is no divide between growing for the household and at the same time creating a wildlife haven and a garden for relaxation.
And of course a garden that is beautiful! Growing veg doesn’t mean your garden needs to look like an allotment! Learn how to design a garden that fits in with your lifestyle, your needs and aspirations.
