In these short, dark days after the demise of strands of sparkling Christmas tinsel and colourful lights, after the tree has been packed away, recycled or removed to grow in the garden, it’s wonderful to find small rays of hope to see us through to springtime.
Here’s where Kitchen Garden comes in – helping to banish the gloom and prepare for longer, warmer days with the promise of healthy harvests and gardens packed with colourful summer blooms and butterflies.

“Joyce Russell has some top tips for making propagators from recycled and simple materials to get your seeds off to the best possible start, and continuing the theme KG‘s staff writer Tony Flanagan compares the merits of some popular products designed to make sowing easier and more successful.

Rob takes you through the gardening month on his plot where among other things he is planting some early potatoes in pots, while no-dig expert Stephanie looks at how the technique can work to improve your soil and the wider environment.
