Well, we finally get a day when we don’t open the curtains to find a frosted wonderland – and instead we have a day of solid rain! So, no plot visit for me today, regardless of how much needs doing. Ah well, this too will pass.

If you are at a loose end or doing some thinking about trying out some new things in the year ahead you might find the Dobies Seed site’s advice pages of interest, as well as their new for this season seed varieties.

Remember, if you are tempted to buy seeds as a GFAA member or volunteers you will get a 40% discount on all seed purchases and 10% off other items – but you must use our unique discount code at the time of purchase. If you need the code, there are copies of the Dobies Catalogue with the code included in the Octagon, or just get in touch and I will be pleased to let you have it.
