THIS year is the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and there are plenty of ways to celebrate, including events around the country and an extra bank holiday. 

As we head into summer and the weather improves, what better way to mark the jubilee than sprucing up your garden. 

This year, the Queen has picked out a special rose to commemorate her 70th year on the throne. 

There is also a hanging basket on offer from You Garden which is perfect for designing a royal garden.
