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.
