AT THIS time of year our gardens are bringing us rich rewards.

Flower borders look glorious – alive with all the colours of the rainbow.

Whether a cottage garden, a formal garden, or flowers in tubs bringing beauty to back yards, gardens are our own little havens.

On a smaller scale, window boxes and balconies can bring pleasure, both for the gardener and passers-by.

For those who grow their own, vegetable plots are beginning to bear crops which can be put to use at the dinner table.

We would love to see your gardens. You can tell us about your favourite plants and you may be able to pass on some tips to others as to how to develop and nurture a garden.

We will need a few pictures to show readers how your efforts have paid off.
