Join Richard in this weeks vegetable gardening podcast where he is talking about growing spring cabbages. Richard also shares the latest from the allotment and vegetable patch.
This week Richard has sown several seeds in his potting shed including cabbage, parsley, Coriander and basil to name just a few. Particullery focusing on herbs to grow on the kitchen windowsill through the colder months.
Richard has also started cutting down brunches from a willow tree that is in his garden. This tree although a rather beautiful tree is just in the wrong place and blocks out much of the light from one bed.
Down on the allotment Richard spent an entire day on the allotment, catching up on lots of jobs that the weather recently has prevented him from tackling.
You can hear all about it in the diary section of this weeks podcast.
