Spring in the garden

Psychologies Wellness Director, Eminé Rushton’s husband, food and nature writer, Paul, celebrates the abundance of April, alongside the notorious nettle – bringing wisdom from Weleda’s own garden in Derbyshire to his humble plot in Kent

Living well

We have had snow and showers, gales and gushes of the brightest sunlight… the journey into spring has not been without its surprises.

For us, with our postage-stampsized back garden, supplemented by a plot at our local allotment, things suddenly pick up a gear at the end of February – a beautiful little crocus forces its head up through the crumbling path outside our front door and I spend an enjoyable, if wet, Wednesday, popping my red and green broad beans into the soil, along with my well-chitted potatoes. At the Weleda farm, the same flurry of activity abounds, if on a much more orderly and intensive scale! We began our year-long partnership with Weleda last month and we’ll be taking guidance from Weleda’s garden manager, Claire Hattersley, as we try to introduce biodynamic methods to our own garden. We receive an excited note from Claire saying, ‘We’re seed-sowing at full pelt on the farm now – for two days solid. There’s such prolific leaf growth at this time – and a sense of being surrounded by this powerful life force and optimal vitality. You notice birdsong, bees and butterflies again. A festival of abundance – everything is wonderfully fertile.’
