New season imminent…

It has been a wet winter and spring to date with cooler temperatures but at last it seems the soil has warmed sufficiently and the sun is out so it all on from here. In a week or so we will see the first of the visible green tips and then further growth will result in the first leaves unfolding. And so on and so on. Frost alerts will be high on the priority list as well as making sure we have finished any of those last minute jobs such as irrigation repair and testing, weed spray, mulching and any required replants.
