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!
Ouch! Mr Walker is out for the horticultural count with a bad back, so Lucy goes solo this week by giving you a guide of her kitchen garden. At 40x40ft she's packed a plethora of crops into this area (blueberries, raspberries, pears, apples, cherries, peaches, gages, rhubarb, asparagus - the list goes on and on) so in this episode she gives you an insight into what any respectful grow-your-owner would be doing on their spring plot. With the weather yoyo-ing, her thoughts are dominated by how her fruit flowers will deal with this chilly spell - only time will tell how her precious crops fare.
