Happy Easter! 9th April 2009

It really does feel like Spring now, with those lighter nights, daffodils and tulips popping up everywhere. My favourite time is when the woods start to fill with bluebells.

Make the most of those extra few hours of light and start getting some pots ready for planting. I've ordered lots of mini varities this year - mini courgettes, mini tomatoes, mini cucumbers. One or two are bound to not survive, but there should be a fairly good hit rate. I will keep you posted with my successes/ and failures!

If you haven't already take advantage of our offer with Wiggly Wigglers, who have offered Ochre & Ocre newsletter subscribers 15% off. They don't just do composting, you can buy seeds, plants, and even a gift for the hedgehog in your garden! Just sign up to our newsletter to get the discount code.

We are also running a competition in conjunction with Period Living that starts today, to win an amazing £350 worth of Ochre & Ocre products.

Why not make a special effort on Sunday, lay it with your best cloth, (preferably one of our lovely organic ones!) and decorate your table with fresh flowers, hand painted eggs, and scatter a few chocolate eggs around the table too - the perfect Easter table.

What ever you do - have a lovely weekend, and Happy Easter!
