March April May


It is spring time, need we say more? It is time to get the grand plan out and spring in to action! There are signs of new life everywhere, the warmth is building in the soil, the days are getting longer and we are champing at the bit. Protection from cold snaps is still essential and so out come the cloches and the fleece in case of a frosty forecast. Now is the main time to get on with sowing all those seeds while enjoying a feast of spring vegetables fresh from the plot. There is no need for a ‘hungry gap’ with so many varieties on offer.
