British Asparagus Month
May 14, 2017
A recent “what’s your favourite month” poll amongst a few friends confirmed May as the clear winner. Flowers blooming, birds singing, bees buzzing, etc were all given as reasons. But the main reason? Why, British asparagus of course!

“Ne’er cast a clout, ‘til May is out”, whether you believe this refers to a winter coat or to May blossom this little saying gives excellent advice.
Don’t put away your warm clothing and don’t put your plants out until the last danger of frost has gone. This does of course depend on whereabouts in the country you live but even down here, in Devon, May can deliver some pretty cold nights.
