Garden pests and Celandine

This week we talk about our top three things to keep in mind when dealing with garden pests in a way that doesn’t damage wildlife, and discuss one of our favourite gardening books by Kate Bradbury. We also take a look at the glorious, glistening Celandine that could be flowering in your garden right now!
