    Welcome to the vine
    I wish you all the best in your new job.

    I do not want to be featured in the magazine.
    But I enjoy seed sowing and getting the tunnels ready for a new season.

    Hi Rose and welcome to the Vine
    Always look forward to topping the no-dig beds with home made compost. A lot of hard work and care goes into making the compost and it's such a reward to see it finally put to use.

    March for me is putting in my spuds. They are the first thing that go in the ground for me, so that always marks the start of the actual season for me.

    p.s. forgot to say - good luck with the magazine

    I'm not sure how possible it is, but could we have some more long-term features? Each month people do things, and we don't seem to come back to them. Might be nice to see how, eg the various garden DIY projects fared in the garden

    As with all my gardening exploits I just ad-lib them. I have a broad plan of what I am going to do that day but rarely stick to the plan.

    Spring to me means I can do my ad-libbing in a tee shirt rather than a topcoat.

    Early Spring is for filling every vacant sunny spot in the house, greenhouse & cold frames with seed trays. Nothing more exciting in gardening to my mind than seeing the emergence of seedlings and the expectation of what they may become. Summer is for watching it all turn to pants

    I'm usually still planning layout and what will be sown where, and although those well laid plans never get fully implemented either, it is such a joy to stand on the plot with a plan in mind and seeds in hand. And let's not forget having a cuppa on the allotment with the sunshine hitting your face, drinking in the warmth and the hope of the new season

    Everyone is out with propagators and seeds, but you know spring is here when you've cleared out the Strawberry beds, add BFB and ready to lay the straw mulch. Then just a few more weeks to the 1st Strawberries.

    The best time of spring for me is when I think ifs time to cover the soil with black poly. to heat up the soil for planting out

    it may be a struggle to reach the top, but once your over the hill your problems start.
