• Dry Spring

    This spring has been remarkably dry. On the plus side I see no slugs chomping on my greens on the negative side we have to consider how this might impact us. Watering just the plant you are trying to grow is one way to meet the challenge. Of course our weather is subject to fluctuations and May Day bank holiday saw intense rain here in Barnet and even a clap of thunder. Managing our soil is always important and no doubt using your own compost or indeed "the black stuff" to increase the water retention of your plot is one way to work with nature. Please ensure you have a means to collect rainwater from your shed roof. This will provide a key source of water and without chlorine is good for your plants too.
