A DIY garden decoration can make or break your business and even your reputation.

It was a gift from the UK’s Department of Culture and Media and has been given the go-ahead by the government, who say it will help businesses create their own distinctive and unique design.
It is not the first time this has happened.
In December last year, the Department of Education published a guidebook for gardeners, which described a few of the most common garden decor trends, including the use of garden paint, which is a non-porous, gel-based colour.
There is also a growing trend for home decorating to have a specific theme.
Some have even used the term “twee” to describe the colour of a garden.
The guidebook states: “Tweed is a soft, cool green.
It can be a colour that can be applied to fabrics, or a decorative element that is applied to clothing and accessories.”
The Department of Agriculture and Food has also recently launched a website with the words “gardening trends” to help gardeners learn about them.
According to the website, this will help garden owners to develop their garden ideas to suit their needs and to improve their businesses.
However, some gardeners are not pleased with the changes, saying they have already been banned from selling their garden products.
“Gardening has always been a social activity and it is very important that the public see how the community of gardeners can create and display their work,” said Karen Goulston, head of the garden community at the Association of Gardeners of Great Britain (AGGB).
“It’s disappointing that this guidebook has been released without proper consultation, and the Government has no plans to change its current approach to the topic.
We think it is wrong for the Government to be encouraging gardeners to not sell their products, and it’s very disappointing that it has taken such a decision.”
If you would like to discuss the issue further with your GP, you can contact them online.
