February 16, 2016


Sorry about there being no link earlier - here it is now!!

I hope you’re well.

I can’t believe it’s nearly March! Where has the time gone?

Valentine’s is past, Mothering Sunday in the UK is just round the corner (6th March this year, US Mother’s Day May 8th) and Easter at the end of the month.

Thank you for your kind feedback on the new/old magazine - I hope you can see everything you wanted to now it’s readable on a PC instead of just a tablet or phone.

The garden is really gearing up for action now and it’s time to make decisions as to what to grow and where.

This issue, there’s some great information for you - some fabulous planting ideas, crafts and garden projects as well as recipes and growing tips. Some videos, some articles, some step by step photos.
