Refresh your garden this Easter

With the long Easter weekend rapidly approaching, and sunny weather on the horizon now is the perfect time to head out into the garden to ensure it’s spring ready.

First up, find out the perfect plants for Spring! From tulips and forget-me-nots to daffodils and lupins, there’s something for everyone’s style and space. If you have a small garden you can still add some much needed colour with a planter or two, or a window box.

Water butts are also a fantastic addition to any garden. They provide a handy way of saving and reusing rainwater that is better for plants, allowing you to reduce your water consumption and in turn reduce your water bills.

Anglian Water Direct has been working with Aqualogic to provide a range of water butts to suit your needs, including this slimline version for those short on space.

You could also try minimising your carbon footprint with a composter. All you have to do is add your food and garden waste to the composter and over a period of time it will break down into compost. The nutrients found in compost are good for your plants but having a composter is also beneficial for the wildlife and environment.

The benefits of gardening include improvements in your health and wellbeing, both mentally and physically, and it also provides a fun activity the whole family can do together.

So, now while we’re still limited in how we can spend our free time, is the perfect chance to get outdoors and spruce up your garden for Spring. You don’t even need to head to the shops as ordering online is quick and easy and you can avoid the crowds.
