More than 60 spaces across London will be given 'green makeovers' today as The Big Dig Day project gets underway.

The initiative, which is now in its second year, gives Londoners a taste of food growing and general gardening skills.

The idea is now due to be rolled out across the country with over 200 gardens in 27 towns and cities taking part in similar schemes.
