Keeping Plant Care Easy This Summer ~ with Homebase (ad*)

Last weekend we took a much needed trip to our local garden centre in preparation for a good-old garden/plant overhaul. We are very lucky to live just a few miles away from our nearest Homebase store. In the 19 years we’ve lived in our home, it’s been our go-to shop for all things gardening and DIY….

Home for the weekend
