Pull on your boots for National Gardening Week

Launched six years ago by the Royal Horticultural Society, National Gardening Week takes place this April between the 10th-16th. We absolutely love it! It’s the ideal opportunity to round up a few friends, neighbours or the kids (during the first week of the Easter hols!) and get out into the garden to begin the big clean-up after the winter. Check out their great dedicated website here and get inspired. There are scores of events taking place all around the UK, from digging and tidying in community gardens to meeting gardeners at RHS venues. We particularly like the ideas for the garden and garden design page on the website, which gives ‘How to…’ tips on everything from building a compost café to planting a green roof


Whatever you do, everyone at The Contemporary Home hopes you have a great time outdoors in the fresh air.
