round up! February 2012

weeding out the best reads from another busy month on the internet

If January was the month of mapping and plotting the year ahead then February was the month of putting plans into action.

The sun shone, bulbs flowered and a distinct feel of spring was in the air.

our pick of this month's reads

  • dwarf Iris - with our own garden being full of Iris reticulata 'Katherine Hodgkin' we especially enjoyed this timely article by Dan Pearson in The Observer.
  • manuples and pugills - This delightful post about weights for seventeenth century gardeners by The Intercontinental Gardener is well worth a read.

Happy reading...
