If anyone is interested, BBC Gardeners World has a good website;  and the Gardeners’ World magazine gives free access to a “What to do now” section. This is a week by week breakdown of things to do for fruit, flowers, veg, in the greenhouse and in the garden in general. There is also a “How to …” section. For gardening equipment you might want to check this Buyers Guide, which not only shows you the best possible tools for your garden but also some very helpful tips!
