Andrea's top gardening tips

Use the nets in washing powder boxes for small quantities of bulbs such as crocuses or to hang lavender flowers to dry.
Recycle name badges you are given at meetings by taking out the card inside the plastic sleeve and using a bright coloured pen or braille to name plants.
Keep a diary of which plants to be aware of throughout the year, and notes to remind you to move, prune or provide support at the right time.
Make a wormery - it will provide you with liquid fertiliser from kitchen scraps. Ensure a constant supply of leaf mulch from the autumn fall which you can gather and leave to break down in black bags in a dark corner.
Grow strawberries and tomatoes in hanging baskets - it will keep slugs away.
