There’s a lot to prepare for the gardening year ahead this month as Claire and Steve discuss at the Adhurst Estate Allotments.

It’s time to sow chillis, aubergines, tomatoes, broad beans, sweet peas (if you haven’t already) and more.  Potato tubers can start to chit and dahlia bulbs need to be gently woken up.

Also with pruning advice from local tree expert Phil Paulo and a Houseplant Takeover at the RHS Wisley with Garden Manager Emma Allen. 

And look out for details of Petersfield’s first seed swap – coming soon in March!

Happy gardening!
