Timely Tips

Now is the time to ‘force’ Rhubarb.

Cover the crowns with straw, get a very large pot and put it upside down over the crown and straw.

This keeps the ground warm and stops the the straw blowing all over the garden.

In a few weeks you will an early crop.

Spring is here!

Flowers out this week: Snowdrops,Aconite,Crocus,Hellebores, Cyclamen.

Shrubs filling the garden with scent are, Winter Honey Suckle and Sarcococca (Christmas Box)

Happy Gardening
