We’ve discovered a new-found love for our gardens this year, so it seems only right that we celebrate the great outdoors properly.
This week’s National Gardening Week is all about cultivating your outside space, so get involved by grabbing some new planters or sitting around a firepit with a floral tipple.
Or brush up on your gardening know-how with the help of The National Trust’s brand new book.
