Spring Motoring Now that the weather has turned a little warmer, it is time to give your car a little TLC. The harsh cold months may have taken their toll so start with a thorough clean to reduce the risk of any long-term damage. The underside of a car can become covered with mud and salt and this can cause corrosion if left.

Page 6

If your car is not yet due a service, it’s wise to have a seasonal check to make sure all is well. Local garages often offer a low cost springtime check that will highlight any immediate or potential problems, and offer reassurance that your vehicle is fully roadworthy for the months ahead.

Don’t ignore the inside of your car – this may have been damp throughout the winter months and needs some attention to ensure it stays in tip-top condition. Written by Jen Oakton

JAZZERCISE 20 YEAR ANNIVERSARY As a way of celebrating 20 years of teaching Jazzercise, Keri Donnellan has completed a tour of her class areas with a fabulous set of old routines hand picked as her favourites from over the years. Through the month of March, the special class took place in Aylesbury, Halton, Tring, Wilstone, Winslow, Pitstone, Milton Keynes & Buckingham. In addition to celebrating such a fantastic achievement, Keri and her team also raised money for Comic Relief. When she started teaching back in 1993, instructors used cassettes for their music and wore lovely thong leotards! iPods are now used and the thongs are long gone, but Jazzercise is still one of the best Fitness programs in the world, going strong after 45 years, ever evolving with the times and exercise fashions. For 15 years, she taught for other instructors, but finally took the leap to set up her own classes in 2007. Since then, she has gone from teaching 6 classes a week on her own, to running 29 classes a week and having a team of 12 instructors.

“When I started the classes back in the Autumn of 2007, little did I know it would grow into such a fantastic team of instructors with an amazing group of customers. I have been lucky to make some great friends and meet some wonderful people in the last few years and am looking forward to the next 20!�. Jazzercise offers a unique blend of cardio fitness, dance, strength training & stretch that is a lot of fun. With classes running weekday mornings & evenings plus Saturday & Sunday mornings, there really is something somewhere for everyone. The 60-minute Jazzercise class includes a warm-up, high-energy aerobic routines, muscletoning and cool-down stretch segment. Jazzercise combines elements of dance, resistance training, Pilates, yoga, kick-boxing and more to a class for people of every age and fitness level. If you want to find your nearest class, go to

The Garden in APRIL Are you plugged in to plug plants? How impatient are you? Come on, be brutally honest now, asks Buckingham Garden Centre’s Chris Day. The way we garden and how much time we spend doing it really depends on our lifestyle but when those ever-so innovative nurserymen decided to market part-grown seedling and cuttings just a few years ago, they were onto a winner from day one. Because, let’s be frank here, when it comes to germination, our patience can be stretched to the extreme! But please don’t get me wrong I still sow plants from seed, mainly vegetables but some flowers, but guaranteed results, especially with bedding (seasonal) plants, is what we want these days! That explains, perhaps, why vegetable seed sales are outstripping flower seeds, and that the popularity of all manner of plug plants are selling well at garden centres.

FULLY QUALIFIED AND INSURED TREE CARE AND GROUNDS MAINTENANCE

Plugs and pots of seedlings offer instant results, so here’s a few tips for you to get the best results from them. • Easter Weekend is early enough to start off your plants. If you can’t plant them straight away grow them on a bright windowsill, spacing the plants out. Popular varieties can sell out quickly, so be savvy and don’t miss the boat. Seedlings, however, have a short shelf-life, so don’t hang about with these, move them swiftly into cell trays using good quality traditional potting compost or a multipurpose compost. • Carefully water the seedlings and allow them to drain for half an hour. You must keep the compost damp, watering when the top surface starts to feel dry. It’s worth noting that more seedlings die through drowning in misplaced kindness.

Tr ees and Hedg es

•Tree felling, limb removal, height reduction. • • Stump .grinding. •Hedge trimming and height reductions. •Removal of shrubs and bushes. •Turfing •Fencing •Landscaping •LOGS for sale

• Seedlings, like Lettuce, Begonias and Onions, benefit from being moved into individual compartment trays so they can be moved without any disturbance. Mesh and small 6cm thumb pots need to be moved into 9cm pots if you are planting straight into cropping bags in the case of greenhouse crops or hanging baskets or similar planters. Hanging basket plants such as Fuchsias, Pelargoniums and trailing Verbena may need pinching to help encourage a branching plant. • Most compost contains sufficient food to last around six weeks from planting. You can still buy traditional peat-based compost, which is especially useful for potting up plug plants. Commence liquid feeding with Phostrogen or Miracle-Gro after the 6 weeks from re-potting.

• You may need to adjust the regularity of weekly feeds if a slow release fertiliser such as Osmocote has been incorporated into the compost. • Once your seedlings are ready for planting out then it is important they are gradually acclimatised to the garden. The process of ‘hardening off’ can be hastened by using cold frames, or simply bringing plants into cooler conditions and then fleecing at night if frost threatens. Vegetables plants like Lettuce, Cabbage and Carrots respond well to this. Chitted Potatoes can be planted out from Good Friday onwards in well-prepared soil. The ‘earthing-up’ process will help protect the shoots through May when frosts can still do damage. • Keep a note of the plants you’ve grown from seedlings, seed and net pots for future reference.

Top Tip Attracting beneficial wildlife into the garden should be a priority this month – either by selecting and planting some established plants such as nectar-rich Buddleja (butterfly bushes), Thymes or Asters or by simply sowing some wildflower seeds ad hoc around the garden, along pathways, in unkempt areas or used as insect nectar banks around the fruit and vegetable garden. Seeds can be simply scattered - or broadcast to use the correct term - over the soil and carefully raked into the top 2-5cm of soil. Alternatively, sow them in cell-pack trays - fill with seed sowing compost and sow a pinch of wildflower mixture seed (pictured is the Suttons Annual Mix, which contains Field Poppy, Field Cornflower, Corn Marigold amongst others) and then lightly cover with sieved compost and water in. In 2-3 weeks time you will have a batch of healthy and vigorous seedlings, which can be planted out where they are to flower. METAL
