Looking for something...
- Grow-your-own Strawberries
Save yourself the headache of strawberry shortfalls in the chaos of uncertainty. Nationwide Strawberry farms are in turmoil as a 20% shortfall in migrant workers becomes a reality.
- Protecting your garden during the anticipated water shortage
The UK has fallen victim to the driest winter in more than 20 years which could have serious repercussions for your garden, your plants and our wildlife.
- Get Potatoes ready for chitting
The potatoes are out of the shed looking good and are ready for chitting. My personal preference is to place them in an old egg tray and store them in a cool but frost free place (I keep mine in my trusty garden shed). You should see the first sign of shoots within a few weeks. This is the ideal time to prepare your potato bed, while eagerly awaiting planting time.

- To Dig or Not to Dig – That is the Question!
Is ‘winter digging' a thing of the past? A few years ago I would make sure my veg plot was dug over 'properly', which meant enlisting the aid of my husband who is not the most enthusiastic gardener he's really only interested in cutting the lawn!
- Force Rhubarb
There are two ways to force Rhubarb: Outdoors or inside. Indoor forcing produces the earliest crop but you’ll have to lift the crowns, so if you want to save time and effort, force in situ, outdoors.
- Offer Some Protection
With the dark nights comes the drop in temperatures and there is a real risk of frost damage to your beloved tender plants. If you want to keep them over winter then you’ll have to offer them some protection.
