    November offers chances to catch up in the garden, bag a bargain and look forward to a great garden in the new year. The soil in my flower beds and garden pots is still workable and, while the weather isn’t great, it is possible to be outdoors and do good work. My aim for late […]

    Time to make Christmas cake - the festive season is almost upon us

    It must be a dried fruit thing, that those who loathe Christmas cake also struggle to come to terms with Christmas pudding and sweet mincemeat.
