Summer is finally here and there really is no better way to spend precious weekends and long evenings than outside in the garden. Whether you have a sprawling lawn or a pint-sized patio, staying at home – or ‘staycationing’ – can be the most laid-back affair, and will free up masses of time to entertain, relax and tend to your garden without scurrying off to a far-flung destination. When the sun is shining, gather around families and friends for an impromptu BBQ or vintage afternoon tea party, or simply kick back on a comfortable recliner with a good book and let the hours pass you by amid your own surroundings.
Learn the best tips from RHS Chelsea Flower Show winners and discover how to create a magical garden that will look incredible all through the summer months. Why not splash out on a few new pots and treat your fence or outbuildings to a fresh lick of paint? Or invest in a new set of modular garden seats or a dining table for two? Whichever way you choose to spend your summer days – picnicking with the kids on the lawn or weeding out that herbaceous border – make the most of every day in the garden.
