One thing's for sure, we are heading into a winter like no other. And whatever the restrictions on the number of visitors to our homes, many of us will prefer to do our small-group socialising outdoors.

And, not to put the wind up anyone, but Christmas is on the horizon.

Until now, and unlike some other Northern European countries with similar or less temperate climates (December temperatures in Ireland average between 7-10C), we haven't had much of a culture of outdoor living - but that's about to change. If we want to get the maximum possible use out of our gardens over the next few months, we'll need to address the twin issues of shelter and heat.
