Gardening Round-up: Getting your garden ready for 2018

Can you believe it’s the end of 2017 already? The weather has certainly been playing havoc with my plants this year, I still have Chillies growing in the greenhouse, which adds a bit of colour on the dark dreary days. We have had lots of gardening posts submitted this month, which is wonderful.
