The weather is often unpredictable and settled, so take heed of the weather forecast, a sunny day followed by a clear sky overnight often can result in a sharp damaging frost, burning or killing young plants and leaves. Juggle jobs to suit the weather, use boards to walk on wet soil to avoid compaction of the soil and destroying its structure. Close the valves of the water butts to collect rainwater for later in the season. Begin to sow the early vegetables and plant out newly-raised hardened off plants such as broad beans, beetroot, peas, lettuce, summer cabbage and early potatoes. Continue successive sowing at fortnightly intervals to avoid glut of produce.


The greenhouse always seems to be too small this time of year; especially when we have frosty nights. Young plants can be protected with fleece in a cold frame to ease the situation. Sow half-hardy annuals


directly in the soil as it warms up, or if you space, in trays in the greenhouse. Many perennials can be sown now for planting out in the early autumn, although they will not flower until next year. If you want flowers this year, you will need to buy plants, or even better, try to swap plants with fellow gardeners.


Members regularly bring surplus plants to meetings, or post their availability online, so others can benefit. Last year, members swapped soft fruit, brassicas, tomatoes, courgettes, annuals and perennial flowers.


Our next meeting will be on 27th March, at The Swan Inn on Kirkgate at 7.15pm, for 7.30pm. Come along and join us to talk about all things gardening. Two members will be sharing insights into gardening in the Caribbean and Madeira.
