Plane Tree - Winter 2012/2013

I've been 'following' a London Plane tree for a year now, and this post is the last of the series. It is one of Compton Verney's most prominent trees, and is perfectly located - centrally in the grounds. I've posted a number of articles which recorded the changes through the seasons, and what a year we've had!

The Edible Garden Show

March is generally a busy time of year for gardeners, and especially so for those who grow their own food. There is one garden show however that could be worth finding the time for - the edible garden show. Today, Sunday, was the only day that I had available, so we made the visit a family occasion and took along our toddler for some vegetable spotting. The day started with sleet; cold, miserable and steady sleet, but I was determined to give this show a try. Not only did I want to see for myself how this particular show was put together, but also, in a very small way I wanted to show my support for this 'grow-your-own' style gardening event.
