Gardening can be a lonesome hobby, even more so whilst everyone was in lockdown. Spring is the most exciting time in the garden here, as plants throw out new shoots and flower buds burst open! Cyprus plants start to grow faster than in other parts of Europe. This year there was no-one to share this excitement with as Gardening Clubs and centres were in the main shut down. The heat wave mid-month caused many annuals to go over early, but there are always seeds to save for next year.
