As the days begin to lengthen and spring starts to feel as though it’s almost within our grasp, many of our thoughts will have turned to the new things that can now be sown in our homes and gardens. 

It was this sentiment that Ashley captured in his broadcast, having been inspired by the patients and nurses he’s come to know well in Horatio’s Garden.  

Lots of people have been asking him about how to grow their own food and have shared that they’re already dreaming of summer crops being in plentiful supply in the garden. 

Naturally, many a Gardeners’ Question Time listener will have been brightening up recent grey days by thinking about all the summer vegetables they plan to plant, therefore Ashley felt it was a wonderful opportunity to share a little of his seasoned wisdom. 

With advice on how to get the best start with a host of seeds, including tomatoes, aubergines and sweet peppers, this is most certainly a feature that will help everyone spice up their salads once the long-awaited warmth arrives; all you need is a sunny windowsill!
