International Greenfingers Day

At last, something besides the weather to post about…

Once again we head towards early April, and it has to be, just has to be so much better that the year to date

Saturday April 7th will once again see us celebrate International Greenfingers Day. 

International Greenfingers Day! is that day each spring when we set to celebrate the potential that the new growing season and year presents.  It is a day to celebrate gardeners in their gardens, a day to plant up some pots and trays, or plant up a raised bed or drill on your plot.  It’s a day to take some seed sowing selfies as a record and have  something to look back on in late summer and autumn.  It is also that day when we get to enthuse and encourage other people to do likewise and sow something from seed or set, and hopefully introduce them to, and inspire them with all of the benefits of growing something for themselves.  It is a day for giving someone a gift of some seed, and helping them to get their hands a little grubby: a packet of seed, a small pot or tub with compost, a can of water and some labels.  The rest is in care and patience.

So, why not?  Gift the gardener in your life with some seed if for no other reason than for the day that’s in it, and watch the enjoyment as they get their hands dirty…

International Greenfingers Day! This is what it’s all about
