I love this time of year when Mother Nature is performing miracles right before our eyes. Life seems to be springing forward in all directions not least at the Nurseries. Already there is a great choice of vegetable plants for planting straight out into the garden such as perpetual spinach, carrots, leeks and lettuce. I’ve used a barrel to plant up my herb garden , which has burst into life. They are a great addition to any meal. I have had several harvests of rhubarb already and it is still offering me more. My soft fruit bushes are beginning to show promise too as well as the fruit trees.
Spring is a great time to get planting so you can benefit from a wonderful harvest of fruit and vegetables. Some plants may need frost protection so don’t plant out until the threat of frosts are over. Come and visit us at the Nurseries to see the array of plants we have available now. Don’t be afraid to ask if you need any help. Remember you don’t need to have a big garden to grow fruit and vegetables.
