Easy Peasy Gardening with B&Q Easygrow

I am not a gardener, of the many crafty pastimes I enjoy gardening, unfortunately, isn’t one of them but when B&Q asked me if I wanted to give their super simple Easygrow technology a try (and with the spectre of our poor, unloved garden floating in my mind) I said why not?

The Easygrow bedding plants use Teabag Technology, the roots of the plant and a bit of soil is all contained in a teabag type bag that degrades naturally so all you have to do is dig a hole, pop it in and cover it up. That’s it – amazing! It’s also better for the environment too – you can find out more about B&Q Easygrow .

Now I must admit that it’s getting a bit late for planting, summer is obviously prime time but there’s still time to add a bit of colour to your garden before the winter sets in properly. I used the plants for the little patch outside our backdoor. This was once nicely planted but has been neglected for a few years and needed some clearing but once the weeds and brambles had been pulled out it left a fresh patch of soil and a big white crumbly rock (plus a bush with pink flowers that I don’t know the name of!)

My creative vision apparently doesn’t extend to designing flower beds so I started the best way I knew how, one plant at a time! I dug my hole, popped a Cyclamen plant in, pushed the soil over the top and bam, I had a flower bed! (Sort of.)

After working my way round the bed with some Primroses, Violas and Dianthus my flower bed was complete and oh so pretty!
