I’ve been spending every spare moment in the greenhouse or garden for the past few weeks. This time of year, flats of seedlings occupying every spare inch in the greenhouse. They are crammed in amongst cuttings of overwintered tender perennials like coleus, a huge pot of a dark-leaved elephant’s ear (Colocasia sp.), houseplants that didn’t fit inside this winter, and more.
