As GardenSIte's plant specialist I always keenly anticipate the HTA National Plant Show. This is my chance to visit nurseries, find out what's trending in the horticultural world and source new stock, all from under one roof.
GardenSite welcomes wholeheartedly the government initiative to introduce gardening into the curriculum from September 2014.
It should be clear to everyone who loves gardening that getting children involved at an early age is vitally important.
Pupils from Key Stages 1 – 3 will be taught to 'cultivate plants for practical purposes such as for food or for decorative displays'.
The reasoning behind this move is to improve academic achievement, for example in science, numeracy, literacy and language ability. Life and employability skills are also expected to increase, along with health and wellbeing.
The RHS (Royal Horticultural Society) are also fully behind this exciting innovation and already have 16,300 schools signed up for their 'Campaign for School Gardening'
However, they recognise the next challenge is to ensure that all teachers and schools are prepared. This is where GardenSite can make a real difference by working with schools and supporting them with a wide range of outdoor and gardening solutions. After all, we have already been supplying schools for over 60 years.

To show how serious we are in backing this initiative, we have appointed a dedicated schools' contact – Dan Saul, who can be reached on 0121 355 7701.
Although our website shows everything you may need in terms of stock, price and delivery details, it's probably best to speak initially to Dan who will be able to help in any way.
Heating will be a deciding factor on the variety of plants you are able to grow in a greenhouse and the number of plants that can be kept over winter. Here, Robert Hall goes through the pros and cons of the different types of heating that are available.
Grange are introducing several new fence panels and gates in 2017 and Andy Taylor has been looking at these fresh additions to their already impressive collection of timber products.
