NiE Get Growing

Putting your hands in the dirt, digging and creating something that's beautiful and useful are all part of the experience of gardening and spring is the perfect time to plant a range of flowers and herbs. You don't need a big backyard or a green thumb to do some gardening. If you have very little space or experience, you can start out with just a few plants in containers.

Join us for this five part NiExtension  published  from Monday September 8 to Friday September 12 as we provide gardening tips, plant information, a guide to games and gardening activities to try in a lead up to your newspapers' seed giveaway.

Grab a spade, go into the garden, get your hands dirty and get growing.
