Spring 2022 has arrived and a new chapter in our gardening lives has started as bulbs, early blossom and the early tufts of seedlings and 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 - it's 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!
With Lucy being poorly, and Saul tied up with the post-storms clear up, both Head Gardeners admit to being a fortnight or so behind their usual timetable. Mulching needs attention, and so the duo crack on with various spring jobs. Lucy also visited the Garden Press Event, looking for new peat-free composts and securing a beautiful pair of Niwaki secateurs as a thank-you to the podcast's Buymeacoffee supporters. Saul also talks shredders, observing how these substantial machines have improved in design and quality over the decades.
