It doesn't seem possible that it is a year since the Gardening Club held its last meeting – all the hopes that things would be back to normal by June, then October were dashed as this nasty pandemic took hold. But our gardens became a place of refuge, allowing gardeners more time to enjoy their hobby and also introducing many non-gardeners to the joys of growing their own vegetables and flowers thus making the lockdowns bearable as “pottering around” and “staycations in the garden” became the norm.
Now with Spring upon us, it's time to plan ahead so that a fruitful and colourful garden can be enjoyed later this year. Local Garden Centres are open so you can obtain seeds, bulbs and plants. Also some of the supermarkets and DIY Stores are stocking a selection of ready-grown plants. Although the weather can be a bit temperamental enjoy the lengthening days and warmer temperatures.
Remember: March Winds and April Showers bring forth May Flowers!
As soon as we have any information regarding holding meetings at the Day Centre again we will let you know - the biggest problem at the moment is social distancing in the hall but as soon as things improve it will be super to welcome everyone to our meetings again.
