Most of the year we plant, water, weed and mulch – work. Garden Day, however, is the time to reap the rewards of your labour. No matter how big or small your garden is – whether you have rolling lawns or simple window box displays – Garden Day is all about downing tools and celebrating the fruits of your labour.

Join us in your garden on Sunday 10 October.
