LONDON - AUGUST 18: Community gardener Sarah Milner-Simonds tends to chickens being kept on her allotment in Ealing on August 18, 2009 in London, England. B&Q, Britain's largest DIY retailer, has seen sales of its chicken coops treble over the last year. Reasons for the increase in chicken keeping have been attributed to consumers adopting self-sufficiency as a means of beating the credit crisis as well as gaining greater confidence in the quality and welfare of their food.

A DESIGN workshop aiming to spread gardening skills is set for a Somerset town this weekend.

The workshop, held at Marine Cove in Burnham on Saturday from 10am to noon, will be held by award-winning garden designer Sarah Milner Simonds.

She said: “The workshop is designed to help participants learn how to use edible ornamentals to make your garden more productive.

“No experience of garden design is necessary, all you need is an interest in your garden and desire to make a change”.

Those interested in taking part are asked to bring a sketch book, pencil and sharpener.
