It’s summertime and the weather is sweet… This is the ideal time to spend a few hours outside bonding with the family. What better way to do this than to tackle a gardening project that’s not only fun, but also gives you delicious veggies in the end! Get your loved ones together to build a Square Metre Garden. This is how you do it:

Step 1: Remove timber from packaging. You’ll notice there is a weed guard included in the Square Metre Garden.

Step 2: Prepare the area where your garden will be placed. Assemble by slotting the pieces of wood together, to create a box.

Step 3: Once the box is assembled, place the weed guard into the box. This will stop weeds from growing and taking nutrients from your veggies.

Step 4: Fill with a mixture of potting soil, compost and Organic palm peat.

Step 5: Once filled, firm down soil to cover whole area.

Step 6: Place the thin wooden rods across to slot into each side creating nice individual plant pockets.

Step 7: Plant your veggies! Or herbs, or flowers! Even a mixture of all can be great fun.

Step 8: Water in style with our Moulton Mill Metal Watering Can. Don’t forget to add a soluble fertiliser.

And when you’re done, share your garden with us on Facebook, we’d love to see what you got up to!
