Whether you can retreat to a garden, an allotment or a balcony, have windows blessed with blooming windowboxes or shelves and tables laden with treasured houseplants, this Sunday is Garden Day so take some time to get your plants and flowers into tip-top order and when Sunday comes, sit back and enjoy the fruits of your labour.

Make your local garden centre and florist online your port of call for any last-minute plant and flower orders and on the day itself, join the first-ever virtual garden party and take part in the online gatherings arranged for you throughout the morning and afternoon.

Go full-on flowerchild and make a flower crown with the help of celebrity florist Simon Lycett (pictured, above) and others, or listen to Sophie Dahl as she tells us all a story. If quizzes are your strength, join hortpreneur and gardening expert Mr Plant Geek for his garden-themed one, while the cooks among us will want to drop in on no-dig gardener Stephanie Hafferty’s garden gastonomy session.

Take a look at the full programme and join in the fun; download the Garden Day toolkit and Candide app, and share photos of your celebrations with @GardenDayUK and #GardenDayUK.
