Patrick Hunt will present a talk on what to be doing in the garden to prepare for the growing season ahead. We will look at what is involved with growing a number of vegetables in March such as potatoes, broadbeans, onions, garlic, leeks, spinach and brassica salads. We will also look at some flowers, fruit, shrubs and trees to increase Biodiversity and what species these will attract. This will likely be the first in a series of talks which follow the seasons. The talk will include a slideshow and a practical demo on plant propagation techniques.
