After all the hype, preparation, hard work and celebrating there it is – gone again. Bye, bye Christmas! We had a good one, and hope that all our customers, friends and acquaintances did too?
Back to the grindstone tomorrow, as the garden centre is open 7 days a week again for the rest of the year. We have been open selectively in between Christmas and now, but we also needed a little down time to re-charge batteries, and prepare the shop with it’s “post Christmas” look.
Next focus I guess is spring, although all our new season stock of both flower and veg seeds arrived this week, and sowing time is looming. Start thinking about what you might like to sow this year. Make sure your seed trays and pots are all clean and sterilised (or buy new ones if you need them). Check you have sufficient good quality seed compost available. Where will you sow your seeds, and how will you keep them warm?
It’s a good month to stay tucked up indoors, but spring will be here before you know it. Don’t be caught out!
