Show Notes

Spring 2022 has just arrived and a new chapter in our gardening lives has started as bulbs, early blossom and the beginning tufts of seedlings a herbaceous perennials speak of the year ahead. As days in spring seem to tumble one after another in an ever accelerating list of garden jobs, plantings and hum of mowers - its a great time to shake off the winter slumber and start to engage with the natural world around us, enjoying the spectacles of spring that lie within. As ever Saul and Lucy will bring you their waffled musings and exciting revelations as this most joyous of seasons unfolds!

If there is one guarantee in March is that the nations gardeners are splurging their money on seed packets for both the Vegetable Garden and for annuals and perennials in their flower borders. One of our listeners, Nikki Parsons, is one such gardener who got in contact with us to ask about how we store our seed and what we do when we don't have a seed packet's crucial sowing instructions in front of us? We also give a few tips on watering, talks Blood Oranges and Rhubarb and give a huge amount of thanks to our Buymeacoffee supporters!
