To reduce problems with our gate locks we oil them on a regular basis (if we remember) - about once a month. Unfortunately this does mean that keys may well get a bit messy for a few days so please be aware. ).

Planting & Harvesting Guide here

     

March Work

Protect new shoots from slugs and snails.

Plant shallots, onion sets and potatoes when soil is sufficiently dry and warm.

If the soil isn’t ready, you can start sets off in modules for later planting.

Deal with emerging weeds before they take over.

Cover any cleared ground to stop weeds re-growing if you aren’t immediately planning to use.

Sow greenhouse tomatoes inside in warm conditions.

Now is an ideal time to plant fruit bushes and trees.

Cover some ground to get it in good condition for early sowing/planting.

Start sowing a wide range of vegetable seeds under cover – outside or in pots.

Plant perennial vegetables (asparagus, artichokes, etc) in enriched soil.

Note that you need more warmth to get seeds to germinate than they need later on, when light is very important.

Don’t sow if the soil is cold.
