After a long hard winter I am, at last, thinking about creeping back into the garden again
Winter here has seen low temperatures of minus 10C (14F) and snow on the ground for a few days.
After the long hot simmer of last year I was very disappointed and struggled to get through... but now, I'm back and looking forward to what the new year of 2011 will bring.
I found a few potatoes shooting in my vegetable box yesterday, so I have started 2011 with half a dozen potato tubers chitting in my workshop. I also have few things which are just starting out life in the cold frame, although I'm not entuirely sure they will survive.
However, cuttings I took from some shrubs in the autumn seem to be doing ok and I'm hoping they will take. I might even have got a bamboo to take at last... but my history on that plant is not great.
Let me wish everyone a great 2011 and hope you'll join me as I wander along my gardening road.
