Get growing with free seeds in your newspaper!

NOW spring has sprung, it's the perfect time to start thinking about planning your perfect garden.

Starting Saturday, we'll be giving away a free packet of seeds every day for three weeks, while stocks last.

The seeds will include a great selection of fruit and vegetables, herbs and flowers, allowing you to start planting a backyard patch bursting with flavour and colour.

All you need to do is cut out your daily coupon from your local paper and take it to your local participating newsagent.

As well as giving you a great start to your garden, we're also giving one lucky reader the chance to win a day with outdoors guru Costa Georgiadis, who will help you plan and create your ideal vegie patch.

Just go online to to enter.

And in Weekend this Saturday, we'll bring you an interview with journalist and TV presenter Indira Naidoo, author of The Edible Balcony and The Edible City, who will show you how even the smallest private and public spaces can make the perfect spots to grow your own food.

After having harvested more than 70kg of produce from just a 20sq m balcony, Naidoo knows what she's talking about.

So get reading, get collecting, get growing!
