A gorgeous garden with minimal effort


Gardening is one of those things we all wish we were good at. Parents always seem to know how to do it and have resultant beautiful gardens. Yet for most of us it’s a mystery of trial and error; a trail of sad plant deaths and the odd very exciting bloom. We just want somewhere nice to sit and have a drink on a warm evening. Need it be so hard?


Turns out, there are easy ways to make your garden lovely, and they don’t require knowing what to do with a dibber. The absolute easiest way is to read Scotts Miracle-Gro’s introduction to the gardening world, The Extremely Busy and Important Person’s Guide To Gardening.  Then let comedian Ellie Taylor demonstrate the basics for you in the video below.

Now you know what you should be doing, it’s on with the gardening. Good news! You only need three Scotts Miracle-Gro products to make a beautiful garden. No tools required. Just sprinkle the product over plants, weeds and lawns donning your designer gardening gloves and then have a glass of Pimm’s.


Weedol PS Pathclear Weedkiller will keep all those nasty weeds at bay for up to three months. Evergreen Complete 4-in-1 Lawn Care will keep your grass looking lovely and lush while fighting off weeds and moss. And Miracle-Gro All Purpose Continuous Release Plant Food will help grow plants twice as big* for no extra effort. See, gardening’s a doddle. Now you just need to persuade someone to mow the lawn for you...for more information find us at @lovethegarden
