Being a gardener has meant mainly one thing recently  – saturation of all things subterranean and clotthing.


Due to years of research, as I prepare for my  winter gardening period I have discovered the wonderous material that is  Ventile .  Warm,waterproof and wind proof spring to mind, it is also particularly mud resilient.  A gardeners sense of heaven.

Tuesday  was particularly mushy,  the main cause  being  lack of frost.  Statuesque perennials  now resemble  limp  lettuce.  Three pairs of sodden  gloves later time for home to warm up.   Thank you to our log burner.


Roll out the Ventile and  thermals, roll on Spring..
