Nothing I like more than all the potential in an empty greenhouse at the start of the season! 😁

It is slowly starting to feel like spring is just round the corner and it is staying light till just after 5pm πŸ˜€ We are starting to see flowers popping up, so this brings us nicely to 'flower of the week', which is the Snowdrop. The Galanthus, or Snowdrop is a pretty flower which starts to appear in January. For many of us it is a taste of what flowers are to come over the next few weeks. Snowdrops do not establish well from dry bulbs, so you are best buying and planting them when they are in the green. Or divide a clump, once they have finished flowering 🌱πŸ₯€πŸŒ· #gyoforwellbeing ... See MoreSee Less
