Spring creeps in, with its everchanging array of colours muting from the pristine white of the snowdrops through to the blood red of the camelias and violent purple of the azaleas.
Gardening Tip No.1
Spend at least 5 minutes everyday in the garden doing a small job like weeding or pruning. It all helps, particularly at the beginning of the season when ten seedlings can be removed quicker than one big weed (let alone ten big weeds).When you don’t feel like doing anything, five minutes outside quickly becomes fifteen and a surprising amount can be achieved. And its more fun than sitting in a chair, going on the internet or having a cup of coffee (or tea).
