We know how you feel – but this GIY Starter Kit is designed to make it really easy for you to get started and build your confidence by giving you a quick "win".

It contains a timber-raised bed (1m x 1m) that you can place directly on your lawn. It also includes enough soil and compost to fill the raised bed, and an ingenious "seed mat" which you roll out once you've filled the raised bed, and then water.
