Show Notes

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!

Lucy and Saul are thoroughly enjoying the 2022 growing season, especially as society gets used to opening its doors again. With Chelsea under their belts, the duo are excited to visit their favourites gardens and plant fairs this summer, but what does it take to be a nursery owner on this relentless shows circuit? Long working hours and excessive time on the road can make it tough, so we think we owe these unsung heroes of the plant hunting world a well deserved pat on the back.
