The Cheltenham Festival wasn't the only thing kicking off last week. A few hours of sunshine and the gardeners were out in their droves. We have all been desperate to get out there and suddenly there was a window of opportunity. Nature still managed a bit of mischief making and after dark on friday we were treated to four degrees of frost, but it didn't deter many. The seeds were flying out, the first potatoes were going in and we had put out a range of young vegetable plants to liven the display. It is still early days,but there is a feeling that the season has arrived and with the clocks set to change this weekend spring just has to be close.
