Show Notes

Winter in the UK is either mild and damp, or cold and windy - and who would want to be outside as a gardener at this time of year - well Saul and Lucy for one, as these months are some of the busiest in all of the 12. While the garden may be slumbering, Head Gardeners and their teams are beavering away on major jobs, garden renovations, cleaning and tidying the years clutter and making plans for 2024. So join us every week to see what we're up to in the cold months in our work and home gardens.

It's a route many of us take when we embark upon our professional gardening journey, and so Saul and Lucy couldn't let National Apprenticeship Week pass without giving this method of training due appreciation. The range and reputation of venues offering such schemes is impressive, and the partnership of training whilst earning an income makes these on-the-job schemes a viable option for many. Plus, Lucy shares exciting composting news - hear her heave a huge sigh of relief!
