A Little Bit of Spring

It's this time of year that finds gardeners in the house getting under everyone's feet, being tutted at, shushed out of the way and when things become too much the words, 'Can't you go and do something?' are yelled, screamed or spoken through clenched teeth. There is no doubt that many of us are kicking our heels or worse still lamenting that our winter crops got in the ground too late and seem to be doing nothing. Conversations about weather become the staple, the mere twinkling of a warm day and we're outside, but what then?

Pig For Victory No.3: How to dig

We could have gone down the avenue here of how to dig with your left foot forward, part of the Dig For Victory approach to digging but over the last three years we have discovered over working the soil only leads one way. Digging for abundance can damage your soil and we have be re-educating ourselves to hang up the spade. We hope the film below will help you rethink how to use your soil and whether you should dig or not. The decision is your's but Dig For Victory has shown us that digging may not be the only answer.
