We take a look towards longer days and warmer weather as salads make a welcome appearance in the gardening world!
It’s a time to celebrate in the KG office, writes editor Steve Ott. This is the first issue we have put together since winning the biggest accolade in gardening journalism – yes, Kitchen Garden was voted Britain’s Best Gardening Publication at the recent Garden Media Guild Awards.
Not only that – our wonderful fruit writer David Patch was voted Best Practical Journalist by the prestigious judging panel. So I’d like to take this chance to thank the whole KG team and especially all our wonderful contributors, plus of course all our loyal readers who have helped to make KG the UK’s best for those who grow their own delicious fruit and veg.
Back down to earth and we have some wonderful features for you this month: award-winning David Patch brings you the first part of his two-part series on grafting your own fruit tree, Ben Vanheems tells you how to produce your earliest salads and Rob Smith reveals his favourite cabbages for year-round pickings.
Refill of bubbly? Don’t mind if I do!
