And in other news… 22/02/2017

Editor’s note

It is getting to that time of the year where beautiful winter annuals can be sowed. It’s possibly one of my favourite times, that and spring time when flowers are blooming and everything is starting to turn green again. This year I have the luxury of having a brand new garden to work on. New flower beds have been dug up and plants are being put in.

If you have a garden why not brighten it up this winter with some Snap Dragons, Petunias, Violas, and Alyssum between your perennials and shrubs? Especially since the soil is nice and wet from all the rain we’ve had. – Sarah
