My week: Winter hangs on:

An injury has forced me to stay indoors this week.

However, it has given me an opportunity to plan outings.

This year I hope to stay near at home to extend my gardening knowledge.

NTU has a special unit to help people with learning difficulties.

The Flower Pod has invited Christine Walkden to give a talk in March.

I now have an interest in Vegetable Gardening.

Charles Dowding is giving a talk in April on “No dig veg”.

I have researched three more gardens to visit.

Elli car Gardens near Doncaster has beautiful borders and a Natural Pool for swimming.

Welford Park near Newbury and Brodsworth Hall near Sheffield

are worth  a visit.

There is no need to feel down when the weather is cild.

Use the time to make plans.

My week: New contacts , new ideas.

The collapse of Carillon is much in the news.

Perennial has offered to help anybody in the horticulture and landscaping industry that needs help.

A good friend indeed.

I made a good contact this week.

As I sat having a cup of tea in a favourite tea shop I talked to two people who had a small holding in Derbyshire.

We exchanged info on gardens to visit.

They told me about Rhubarb farm in Derbyshire . This is a community Project

It does local veg boxes, educational visits and much more.

I have been contacted about the Belvoir Flower show in July.

Tickets are now on sale.

As i have often said , we need others to help us on our way.

Gardeners make good friends for this purpose.
