There are certainties in gardening: every year the circle turns, the seasons come and go and there will be gardening somewhere, by someone; this feels certain.
There are also uncertainties: will it be a cold or mild winter? A long or short winter? Will it rain too much or too little? Will the summer be hot or not? There is so much that can happen and some of it will.
So I shall more write of my progress this year when for once I need to produce flowers for a set date. I will get a glimmer of what it is like to need to do this day in, day out (but without my livelihood depending on it). I have bought a good book to on growing wedding flowers to give me some advice and I am hoping to go on a workshop about growing wedding flowers as well. Flower seeds and plant orders have been made and the veg borders are being turned over almost completely to flower production.
Wish me luck!
