Look for furniture that can be dismantled or folded down, so it can be stored in a loft or shed when not in use. TELL USHow have you found room for a dining area?

1. BougainvilleaPopular botanical variety: Bougainvillea glabraThis fast-growing vine is a beloved backyard beauty prized for its display of spectacular colour. Bougainvilleas are available in pinks, oranges, reds, creams and purples. The plant is a particularly popular choice because it requires very little care or cultivation. In fact, if you rarely prune, fertilise or water it once established, you should see a good show come summer. Plant it in a sunny, well-drained spot against a fence or supporting structure. It will grow well in tropical and temperate climates, especially in warmer winter areas, providing at least spring and summer-long brilliant colour, which will be all-year round in some areas. Did you know? A common misconception with Bougainvillea is that the colourful bracts at the end of a stem are flowers. The flower is actually the tiny yellow thing in the centre of this cluster.22 European garden styling tricks
