With luckily only a few casualties from February’s storms, the Adhurst Estate Allotment is starting to come to life with vegetable and flower seeds sprouting – and the odd weed too.

Claire plans to encourage more pollinators into her garden this year, Steve’s Project Carrot is very much ‘go’ and if you want to plant bare roots get them in the ground this month.

Tree expert Phil Paulo from Future Shoots joins Claire to talk about new tree initiatives taking place in Petersfield this month and how you can help too.

We’d love to hear from you so do get in touch if you have a question or would just like to say ‘hello’.  We’ll be recording at the Adhurst Estate Allotments once a month and look forward to meeting you there.

Growing Together from Petersfield’s Shine Radio – Saturday mornings at 7, Monday evenings at 6 and Wednesday evenings at 8 – and always online at shineradio.uk or on your favourite podcast app.
