PETS IN THE GARDEN
If you own a cat or dog, you’re probably familiar with your furry friend undoing all your good work in the garden. We show you how to design a garden that they’re not as likely to destroy and highlight some features you can add to cater to their needs.

Can’t wait for spring to start planting? Even if you don’t have a fancy greenhouse, there are plenty of simple ways to grow seeds under cover. We explain the ins and outs of this technique, including how to protect them and how to plant them on.
