A new start

Gardeners' World - - We Love February -

Thank you for wak­ing the dor­mant gar­dener in me. Since open­ing my Jan­u­ary is­sue, I’ve or­dered my free dahlias and learnt that I’ve stored my dahlia tu­bers cor­rectly. I’ve agreed with Michael Gove for the first time ever, in ‘Gove cham­pi­ons pol­li­na­tors’ ( Clip­pings, Jan­u­ary is­sue). Monty’s ar­ti­cle on grow­ing grapes pro­vided valu­able ad­vice, and al­though sad­dened by the low counts of house spar­rows in my county, it’s good to know my wind­fall ap­ples will of­fer them a meal. I know what to prune and when to plant broad beans and chilies and sort my seed pack­ets. With so much on, I might have to book a re­lax­ing day at Highgrove and be in­spired by Adam Frost. Wendy Todd, Sur­rey
