Five plants for a border on a budget

Most of us have areas in the garden that could be easily improved without spending too much money.

The best low-budget plan is to bypass the garden centre altogether, and grow plants from seeds, cuttings and divisions. It may not be a quick-fix solution – requiring a little more patience and some gardening know-how – but it’s an extremely satisfying and rewarding way to get lots of plants for very little money.
