It doesn't take much to get us gardeners excited and the one thing that really does it for me is seeing new shoots emerging in the still cold and dark days of January. I know winter is far from over yet but the sight of that fresh green growth means that nature is getting ready for a new start.
The recent mild weather has had a lot to do with it. Chives have up to two inches of new shoots, as have some welsh onions in sowed in a pot last year.
