Autumn has arrived, with all its mellow fruitfulness. A time for autumn digging and moving tender plants under cover before the first frosts arrive.

“A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken.” – James Dent
Let’s hope for a sunny August where we can throw open the doors and windows making the house and garden fully open to each other. Sure, there’s still some gardening jobs to be done but they involve no strenuous labour. Wandering around the garden deadheading faded blooms and cutting fresh ones to fill vases indoors can’t really be classed as chores. Plus, there’s all that eating to do of home-grown salad leaves, tomatoes, peas and more.
So, make a cool drink, pull up a chair and have a browse through our August catalogue.

“It’s difficult to think anything but pleasant thoughts while eating a homegrown tomato.”
– Lewis Grizzard
July is the beginning of that wonderful period when we get to eat what we’ve sown and grown. It’s the month when the delivery of veg boxes can be suspended as we enjoy our home-grown crops of tomatoes, cucumbers, potatoes, strawberries and more.

Summer is suddenly upon us! Long days and steadily rising temperatures make June a wonderful month to be out and about in the garden.

“The sun was warm but the wind was chill. You know how it is with an April day.”
– Robert Frost
It may feel like you’ve only just packed away the Christmas decorations but April and therefore spring are here already!
