Time For A Rest
... Or To Start All Over Again!

What a year it has been! January and February saw the end of a brutal Winter - which was promptly followed by an unseasonably warm April. Then May arrived with a surprise frost or two, and the cold night temperatures continued into July. A warm beginning to September made us think an Indian Summer was on its way and then the late September frosts put pay to that idea - before October coming out gloriously warm! And up until mid December temperatures were still well above average - but finally we are seeing some much needed cold and frost. Looking at the year like that its a wonder that we've managed to grow anything successfully, but of course nature manages to adapt so well; the 'Spring growth' on our raspberries will no doubt be caught by the frost - but no long term damage will be done.

And so the Christmas holiday period is the perfect time to stay in the warm and reflect on the successes and failures of the year that has nearly passed and plan for the growing year ahead.

But don't rest on your Laurels for too long as late December and early January really does see the start of the gardening Season! Christmas Day afternoon was the traditional time for sowing Onions; whilst few of us will keep up the tradition its a timely reminder of the start of the growing Season ahead and the need to plan what you are going to grow. Now's the time to be looking at our range of Vegetable Seeds and Vegetable Plants and putting together your order. Of course bare root fruit and hedging planting can continue right through the grotty Winter months too - and an earlier planting will pay dividends in the Spring and Summer as, when the soil starts to warm, adventitious root growth will imperceptibly start making for quicker establishment and reducing the need for Summer watering (but not reducing it completely).

But enough about things you can eat! Now is also the time to plan the ornamental garden - or even just make a little space for growing some flowers for cutting. Gardening shouldn't just be about providing sustenance for the body, but for the mind also - and there is nothing quite as cheering as some 'pretty plants'.

So there is much to do over the next few weeks and months ahead!

For now, all we have left to say is a big thank you to all our customers (our gardening friends) for the orders you have placed with us over the past year.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year
