Every Monday I pour my morning coffee and plan my week. Last week was so busy with talks, writing, a course day on Saturday; there was little time for gardening at home, so I scheduled Sunday as a whole day of gardening at home.

We spent the weekend at West Dean college near Chichester on 4th and 5th February, where Charles was giving two day courses. The estate was owned by the remarkable Edward James, who donated the land, house and an extensive collection of art to create a college.
Although it is not the best time of year to visit the gardens they are still wonderful – so many flowers emerging outside in early February.

Some of the new sowings for the glasshouses and vegetable gardens.
I have serious glasshouse envy!
The impressive walled kitchen garden was remarkably empty, just leeks this year. Usually there are brassicas too.
