One of the reasons for my truant behaviour of late is – of course! – the garden. Not quite the ‘dog ate my homework kind of excuse’ but not a fair one either if you stop to think about why I started this blog.

Next, add some half-baked instructions and a dedicated partnership…

Third, read the FINE PRINT.

Lastly, dig in!
