Get down to the garden centre this Easter weekend17 April 2014
Get down to the garden centre this Easter weekend and you're in for a real treat. This is the busiest gardening weekend of the whole year: four whole days free to enjoy your garden. It's no wonder everyone's suddenly bursting with spring fever, ready to go out into the garden and start making the most of spring.
They will have plenty of events planned for all the family, from planting demonstrations to hands-on practical sessions so you can have a go yourself. The kids can have fun getting their fingers dirty planting sunflower seeds (perhaps you could have a family competition to see whose grows tallest!), as well as painting flower pots and craft activities. And while you're there, you can stock up on all you need to get your gardening year started, from seed potatoes and handy veg plug plants to a colourful selection of bedding plants to fill containers and hanging baskets.
