In episode 4 of The Wartime Kitchen and Garden, Annie is planting her Anderson shelter, Harry is spraying for blight and Ruth is making brawn.
Fresh from the excesses of Christmas, and with the urge to turn over a new leaf, now is a good time to get the garden ready for the season ahead!
December is another quiet month in the garden, when the bad weather is a good excuse to spend time indoors planning for next year.
The Wartime Kitchen and Garden, starring Ruth Mott and Harry Dodson, was broadcast in 1993.
There’s something nice about the idea that there’s not much to do in the garden in November.
If October starts warm it can provide a nice breathing space, to catch up late harvesting, saving seeds and generally getting the garden ready for the winter.
