To start your vegetable garden, you’ll first need to find the best spot in your garden to capture the most sunlight. You’ll want to select a south or south east facing spot. Your vegetable garden should be positioned in front of any structures like fences, walls, hedges and shrubs, which will also help provide protection from the harsher weather while allowing light from the south east.

Select a spot near at hand and with easy access. You only need a moderate section of land with a location that’s easily accessible and handy to nip out to. You won’t want soaking feet from multiple trips searching for seeds you can’t find across wet grass or muddy soil.

Business ideas are often aimed at women who are already committed to bringing up kids at home but who might also want to contribute to the family income with a home based business. Given the high cost of childcare, staying at home and generating an income from a business activity can be a win win situation.

There is no difference between a male or female based business meaning you can consider just about anything. Play to your strengths by utilising your existing skills and abilities to start your home business.

Wouldn’t it be good to have your own wildflower garden giving a succession of bloom from early spring to late autumn?

Building a successful wildflower garden is best accomplished through the use of native plants including shrubs, groundcover and grasses which are indigenous to the geographic area. A wild garden would usually feature a variety of species that form part of the pre-existing natural ecology of an area.

You can find vintage reproduction posters from as little £5 to £10. Depending on your interest you can acquire posters on movies, travel, maps, art and politics.

It’s worth noting that many original posters such as for the film, “Metropolis” can sell for thousands of pounds and are usually reserved for the serious collector or investor. That said, it is still possible to pick up original posters for a more modest sum if you look hard enough. Keep in mind that it could be difficult checking the validity of an original so tread carefully before you buy.

It’s likely your vintage dress, jeans or jacket have been around for a few years and will have seen better days. However, like an antique it’s got its own history and belongs to a different era with the charm and style of that time.

It could have accumulated some odours or marks through years of use even by different owners before landing in your wardrobe.
