Get down to your local garden centre for Garden Re-Leaf day
Get down to your local garden centre for Garden Re-Leaf day this Friday, when gardeners across the country will be celebrating the start of the new season with the party to end all parties.
Look out for the ever-popular celebrity gardening quiz evenings, when you can test your knowledge with questions voiced by some of the country's best known gardeners including Christine Walkden, Toby Buckland, Pippa Greenwood and Joe Swift.
There are dozens of other great events planned, from in-house plant doctors to answer your gardening queries, to children's planting activities, raffles and a plant trolley dash. There's a special programme from shopping channel QVC, as well as garden centre staff in fancy dress, sponsored treadmill 'walks' and 'find the plot' competitions.
You'll find lots of fantastic special offers, as well as opportunities to win National Garden Gift Vouchers and sunflower-growing competitions.
All the events will be raising lots of money for charity: last year's Garden Re-Leaf raised £55,000 for Greenfingers, dedicated to creating gardens for children's hospices. There's no better way to kick off your growing year.
