Top Tips presents their collected know- how, and makes fascinating reading. We've collected our favourite tips which should make your garden come up roses this year and beyond. . Buy large pots of perennials as these can often be divided straight away, making three small plants instead of one large one. . Don't buy plants if the pot has weeds or moss growing on it. The plant will have been in the pot too long and will be pot- bound. . In dry weather, or in summer, it often helps to water the hole before placing the plant in it. This ensures that the water goes where it is needed - to the roots. . If you have a pond, place a few large rocks near the edge for smaller birds, butterflies and insects to land on. . Very small seeds can be mixed with a bit of sand before sowing. This is not only economical but stops them being sown too thickly. . Tomatoes and potatoes are both members of the nightshade family and shouldn't be planted in succession.
