The presence of some Spring -like sunshine and the sighting of snowdrops and daffodils on our walk to work of a morning has got us all excited. Whilst the start of the year was a lovely time to relax and curl up on the sofa away from the elements, the 1st March has given us a well-needed spring in our step. So, if you are feeling the same, why not check out our latest Outside Edge for some fun and inspiring things to do this month.

Fashion and Gardens at The Garden Museum
Fashion & Gardens is the first exhibition to explore the relationship between fashion and garden design, from the age of Queen Elizabeth I to the catwalks of London Fashion Week 2014. The exhibition, curated by writer, historian and Garden Museum Trustee Nicola Shulman, will identify and celebrate the many links and correspondences between gardening and fashion design. The connection has existed for centuries, but this exhibition is the first attempt to make it articulate.
