With World Naked Gardening Day nearly upon us, we've compiled a Smallholder list of do's and don'ts to consider.


  • Take part if gardening is your actual job and you work Saturdays
  • Invite the family round
  • Forget the sun tan lotion
  • Mow or strim
  • Appear suddenly in front of unsuspecting animals


  • Avoid areas of wild hedgerow where nettles are present
  • Stay away from thorny bushes. Roses are probably a no-no.
  • Avoid handling chilli peppers
