The changing seasons

It's amazing how our gardens change throughout the year. With each new season come changes in light, temperature, rainfall, and snow cover. Let’s have a look at each of the four seasons and how they can affect our gardens



This is the coldest of the four seasons, and the wet, frosty weather can put a dampener on our garden. But this can also be a magical time with sprinklings of snow, winter berries and evergreen trees all around



This is when new life begins – so it's the perfect time to plant new flowers. Buds will start to appear as warmer weather arrives again and our gardens will have much more sunlight to enjoy throughout the day



The warmest season of all, summer is when our flowers are in full bloom. Too much sun and heat can be bad news for our gardens, but some well-placed shade and careful watering will help



As leaves begin to change and fall, beautiful colours fill our gardens. With weather that's not too warm and not too cold – this is one of the best seasons for gardening

How to prepare your garden for a wonderful year ahead

We are now well and truly in the depths of winter, and this can be a quiet time for gardeners! But there’s still plenty to do to set your garden up for a blossoming season ahead


Here are some tips and tricks to get your garden off to the best start this year:


  • Clean and tidy your garden tools and sweep up any slippery leaves
  • Plant fruit trees on cold but clear days
  • Dig up and turnover your soil to prevent frost and prepare it for spring


  • Grow veggies like cabbages, garlic, broccoli, and leeks (as long as the ground isn’t frozen!)
  • Support fragile stems in wild weather by tying them to posts in the ground
