Welcome

We love January For sparkling winter gems • This is the beginning. We wake up (some of us possibly feeling a little delicate after the excitement of New Year’s Eve) to a new morning and a brand-new year. It sparkles with opportunity and promise: What will we grow? Will it be an early spring? Will the summer be blessed with sunshine? Will there be long, languorous lunches on our lush lawns? Right now, these things all seem a long way away but, gardeners are full of optimism and hope – enjoy the little gems that the last of winter brings and be confident that we are on the way up.
