Easter in the Garden….and April


If you aren’t spending some of Easter admiring the autumnal glory of others’ gardens, then you should be in your own, digging, planting and enjoying the season. It’s a perfect time to be out in the garden and neccessary if you want to be feeding yourself through the colder months.

It’s also a good time to apply the biodynamic preparations over the next couple of months – we put out our first BD500 for the year last Friday, and planted a bed of garlic whilst the preparation stirred through the flowform for an hour.

So, think about feeding the soil, taking cuttings of herbs, sowing sweet peas and poppies, making compost … Go to the the April planting notes to see what, when and how …. And enjoy one of the best times of year in the garden.
