The seasons

When I was younger the seasons were defined as for example Nov, Dec & Jan. were winter. But I think that has now all changed, at least from a gardening point of view. You often see references to "early spring" or "mid spring" or "late spring" etc. I would consider March to be early spring and May as late spring. I was wondering what your thoughts are on this? DonFoley, Maynooth, Co Kildare Posted: 13/12/2016

Yes, I would agree. AUtumn has expanded, December is early winter. January is later winter. February is early spring. Mid-May is early summer. and each year is different.


Seed storage

I would like to store seeds in old plastic containers from multivitamins that have moisture eliminating tops. What would you recommend? ferko, Cork, Co Cork Posted: 13/08/2015

Seeds in general are best stored in dry, cool conditions. 

The plastic containers sound fine and could be worth a test.
