Nothing like a stroll in the woods to blow away the cobwebs! A rare weekend without workshops allowed us to escape London for a little rest and exploring. Hebden Bridge (30mins away from Manchester) has everything you need! The @nationaltrust Hardcastle Crags, plenty of independent shops showcasing local artisans AND a cute vegan cafe @humblestofpleasures ☺️

Every seed holds the potential for something wonderful to bloom! As February begins we edge closer to a time when we can start sowing seeds again. If you are growing chillies you might have already started! One of the highlights of February is the number of seed swaps that take place. This weekend in Brighton is @seedysundaybton - Britain’s largest community seed swap. It’s a great day out and a great chance to pick up and exchange seeds with other growers. If you can’t make it see if a local group near you is planning something similar or set up a seed swap yourself! If you are based in London you can also check out the @incredibleediblelambeth Seed Swap on the 9th Feb @gardenmuseum Time to get our seeds in order!!
