What better way to start a new year than with a bit of fun and some new haircuts from the Wiggly sofa? Is it a hat? Is it a weight? No, it‚Äôs a lion! A cottage arrives on the drive and Farmer Phil takes the Muddy Matches test to discover if he‚Äôs a muddy or a townie and it‚Äôs proves to be quite revealing!
Richard advises what we should and shouldn‚Äôt be doing in the garden in January, like wearing suitable head wear, and how to rotate crops to avoid disease.
Last, but not least, the subject of Bergamot returns again. Is Michael correct in thinking it‚Äôs more like an orange than a lemon?
