The veg plot will be ready to use and the greenhouse is intact so I'm aiming for a flying start. I have my trusty seed box ready and currently selecting squashes for starting in the conservatory of my current house. Spuds are the one veg item I've never even attempted to grow (no space) although I'm told these new spud bags you can grow on patios are easy to use. In the new place they can go straight into the ground.
I haven't got much in the way of tomato seeds but we do have a very good garden centre in Oxfordshire so I'll have my pick of young plants.
We really fell on our feet with the garden of our first family home. Most new builds come with a postage stamp sized patch of grass but this garden hearkens back to the war. It has a patio leading to a giant flower bed, two play lawns for when our 1 year old learns to walk, workshop, greenhouse, veg plot and even a little suntrap hidden in the back where I can hide all the out of season terracotta pots until the bulbs inside are ready to be wheeled into the main garden for their debut. There's a lot of work to be done (two buddliea that need battling back for a start) but I'm going to love every bit of it. I will happily post pictures on here in April and maybe you can all help me identify some of the plants in the borders.
