Families looking for a way to amuse their youngsters over the Easter weekend could find the answer lies at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.
March is one of the busiest months of the year for gardening preparation, according to allotment expert Caroline Foley.
Due to the slowing housing market, many homeowners will look to make better use of the space they currently have, according to the Federation of Master Builders (FMB).

The beginning of March is the ideal time to sow vegetables such as onions or cabbages under glass, it has been stated.
