... but returning after quite a long hiatus!
Southern hemisphere gardener here, so coming out of the most miserable winter I can remember, and looking for inspiration to get back into the garden.

welcome back, the promise of spring is always enough inspiration for me to fire up the propagators.

Hi Magpie, welcome back :wave:
Why miserable winter, has it been cold there? - seems like everyone has had mixed-up and unusual weather this year :(
Get out there and clean off some of those weeds, and sow a few seeds. You'll feel better once you've started :flower:

Hi Magpie, welcome home. :wave:

Spring is such a fabulous time, my favourite season, full of so many possibilities. I like to browse the seed catalogues, even though we've probably already got what we need - it's something to do with the pictures of things to come, all in one handy little brochure, I think.

Then get out, tidy up and get sowing. :cheers:

Yep, long, cold, wet winter. It is supposed to get to a high of 11 today, which will feel quite warm...
