The garden is singing with delight after a night of gentle rain which has left me inspired to get creative with it this summer. I have Ruth Puffett of Ecobiz Farms to thank for my new found hobby. Her red wrigglers and their castings have transformed the garden and are well worth investing in (read more about Ecobiz). Here are a further 11 ideas to help give your patch of green a new lease of life this summer.
