Make money from your garden or allotment by selling your organically grown vegetables, fruit or herbs to a local restaurant, health food shop or a private catering company.
If choosing evergreen plants or shrubs at a nursery for your garden include some variegated forms - too many dark greens can be depressing on a dark winter day!
Carry planting colour schemes in your flower borders through to window boxs and hanging baskets.
Speed up your compost by shredding everything before you add it to the compost heap or compost bin - small sized pieces of plant material will heat up more quickly!
There are many garden centres in Mid Kent - ranging from small areas in a farm shop to outlets of a large chain of garden centres and an agricultural college nursery shop at Hadlow.
Garden centres may sell a range of items from the usual plants, seeds, bulbs, corms, weedkillers, tools, terracotta pots and garden furniture to gifts including candles, CDs, DVDs, Porcelain, ceramics, clothes and horse and pet food. These can be a good place to buy an unusual gift!
