This may seem a little strange to those of you who follow the conventional calender, but for me the year really starts with Spring. My diary says that the first day of spring is the 20th March, I think it is wrong! Yesterday I pruned my first roses, today I have already carried on with some of my own, for me this is what dictates the beginning of Spring.
There is a definite feeling of extra warmth in the air (even though what has passed for winter has been very mild) everything is shooting, requiring pruning, feeding, re-potting and very, very soon the grass will want cutting.
