Seasonal Greetings from Herefordshire
I may have mentioned the ‘C’ word once this summer but I think I got away with it. In my defence I was talking about spuds but the internet is awash with people complaining that supermarkets and garden centres are already awash, with dare I say it, christmassy stuff.
On social networks it seems that the ‘C’ Word in August causes mass outbreaks of Edward Munch Syndrome with people holding their heads in their hands issuing forth a silent scream.
Anybody who works in retail, catering or any service industry knows that the countdown has already started in earnest. Yet in the horticultural world we are not just planning for Christmas we are planning for spring and so with that in mind I am getting serious with my September bulb order……Now I wonder if Great Aunt Flo would prefer a pot of prepared Hyacinths in her stocking this year……
