Your practical guide to gardening

Gardening: The laying out and tending of a garden. Gardening as a pastime has grown with the increase in home ownership and leisure time. A well-designed garden takes into account the effect of seasonal changes and displays blends and contrasts of colours and forms. Essential tasks include water regulation, protection of plants from pests and diseases, soil maintenance, and control of weeds.
