It’s been a long, challenging winter, but to quote our gardening expert Susie White, “Spring is stirring”. Yes, we’re delighted to welcome Susie back to the pages of My Weekly in this issue, and we look forward to all her wonderful advice for getting the most out of your green spaces as the year progresses. This week, Susie is setting the scene, and just as important as the practical tips to get you started is her emphasis on the healing power of nature and the benefits of getting out into the fresh air now that the weather is improving. Amen to that! Enjoy the issue and have a great week.
