It is so nice to see the sunshine - and so nice to have seen the back of the strong winds and rain too. Like everyone across the Country, we're both breathing a sigh of relief as well as wondering exactly how we are going to catch up! What a Winter it has been - not because of cold but because of rain, floods and gales. In fact the only thing we would like to see just now would be a few hard frosts, just to keep things in check a little.
Here on the nursery it is all systems go, we are months behind with outside jobs, whilst the mild weather means many plants are a month or so ahead. Catching up on our Winter jobs whilst getting on with our Spring work wont be easy, but we'll muddle through!
Under glass our prop area is crammed and pricking out of young vegetable plants and pretty plants is well underway - at last light conditions are improving. Soft fruit cuttings are also on basal heat - it's amazing what a few sunny days can do.
At home, you should be sowing your seeds and starting your young plants; we still could see some frosts (hopefully), and the ground is still very wet - so don't be in too much of a hurry for outdoor sowings, or planting out un-hardened plants (anything from us is hardened before dispatch) unless you are going to protect.
So March really is a month where we have so much to do and so little time - so we better stop writing this and go and get on! But on a final point, if you're a 'Twitter person', do come and find us @Victoriana_NG as we Tweet regularly - and occasionally about what we're actually doing at the nursery!
