Happy new year! Let’s hope that 2021 brings us all some hope, sunshine and great pickings from the plot.
We’ve only just ticked over into the new year but the KG team has been working hard in the run-up to the festive season to bring you the latest news and views from the world of growing your own, with a dash of good humour thrown in for good measure. With the February issue now on sale, we’ve got some fantastic features to share with you!
KG editor Steve Ott, pictured below, writes: “The great build-up to a brand new gardening year continues and it won’t be long before we can start getting some seeds into the soil. With that in mind we have some timely growing guides for you this month and lots of top tips to help you plan your spring sowings.
“Parsnips are a great winter standby but are not always easy to get started. With advice from ace grower Nigel Jewkes, you can look forward to even rows of seedlings and harvesting long, straight roots. We also have a five-page guide to growing that most popular of summer crops, tomatoes, with plenty of pointers to success whether you grow on a patio, veg plot or greenhouse.
“Not everyone is blessed with a garden in full sun or with acres of space – so if you are wondering if that shady spot at the bottom of the garden might just be suitable for some fruit or veggies, turn to page 29 to find out. You may well be surprised at just how much you could grow.
“Organic gardening expert Stephanie Hafferty brings us more great advice for those watching the pennies including how to make your own propagation kit without spending a fortune, while deputy editor Emma Rawlings takes an in-depth look at the amazing onion family and offers her advice for bumper pickings in 2021. Meanwhile staff writer Tony Flanagan takes you step by step through growing summer radish.
Finally, if you are thinking of buying that dream shed you’ve always promised yourself, we have all the advice you need!”
