‘Good Husband Material’ by Triiha Asley Another warm, wise and witty offering from Sunday Times bestseller Trisha Ashley. James is everything Tish has ever wanted in a husband - she’s married a man who even her mother approves of. He’s handsome, dependable, and will make an excellent father - unlike Tish’s first love, the disreputable Fergal. Her teenage sweetheart abandoned her for a music career and now lives a typical celebrity lifestyle. Fergal broke her heart - James helped mend it. Now, they’ve bought a cottage in the country. The next step - kids and a lifetime of domestic bliss. Well, that’s the plan. And even if James has a slight tendency to view the village pub as a second home, their relationship is still in pretty good shape after seven years of marriage. So why is marriage to Mr Right making her long for Mr Wrong?‘ Paul Hollywood’s Bread by Paul Hollywood Paul Hollywood is Britain’s favourite master baker. His new book is all about bread - how to make it and how to use it. But while it’s all very well making a lovely loaf of bread, can you guarantee that

it won’t be wasted? You know those times when you have a lovely crusty loaf, fresh from the oven, and you have a horrible feeling that after the initial excitement is over, half of it’s going to get pushed aside and not eaten...? Well, maybe it’s time to bring bread back into mealtimes for real. Not only does Paul teach you exactly how to make a variety of breads, but for each one there is a spin-off recipe that shows you how to make a fantastic meal of it. The book has six chapters, each with five bread recipes - plus the spin-off recipes for main courses. Not only are Paul’s recipes delicious but they are also foolproof, with comprehensive step-by-step photographs. Try your hand at a basic white bloomer, which can become a savoury picnic loaf; stilton and bacon rolls, which are excellent served with celery soup; fluffy crumpets, which become the base for eggs Benedict; flatbreads, which are a natural pairing with chickpea masala; ciabatta, which the Italians have traditionally used as a base for tomatoey panzanella; pizza bases, which can become home-made fig, Parma ham and Gorgonzola pizzas; or white chocolate and raspberry bread, which makes for the best summer pudding you’ve ever tasted. Tying in with the BBC2 television series, Paul Hollywood’s Bread is all that you could want from a book and more. Get baking!

May in the Garden

W

ith the days finally starting to warm up, it’s easy to forget that the nights can still be quite cold producing sudden sharp frosts which can destroy delicate young foliage and flowers. How ‘early’ or how ‘late’ the season depends on the amount of direct sunshine and rainfall. Each year you will have to play by ear as regards when to plant out and when you think the last of the frosts have gone. Preparation Clear away spring bedding and prepare the ground for summer bedding i.e. weed, rake, and add organic matter to the soil If you haven’t top dressed your borders with a good 3” layer of compost there is still time, but make sure it is well rotted. Compost is much easier to apply before most of the plants start poking their heads through. Propagation The best time to take cuttings for me is in late spring when there is plenty of new growth to choose from, which has a better chance of rooting than older stems. Another advantage of taking them in spring rather than in autumn is you may have the enjoyment of looking after them during the warm days of summer. If you have cuttings or seedlings already on the go keep them moist and on sunny days keep the vents open and make sure they don’t dry out. Pruning Restrain from cutting back the remaining foliage on daffs and tulips wait till they are brown and dead looking. Deadhead any spent blooms on early roses, irises and other early flowers, whenever the seeds are not required. Prune shrubs that have any dead, damaged or diseased stems or branches. Also prune off any wayward shoots. Planting Lift and divide primroses and polyanthus, once they have finished flowering. Replant into enriched soil.

THE

MARKET

With the soil starting to warm up, but still moist from the winter rains, it is a good time to plant shrubs and trees without the need for excessive watering regimes. Make up your hanging baskets but bring in to a conservatory or greenhouse if warning of frost. Some seeds can be sown directly into the ground now such as sweet pea, cosmos, nightscent, iberis, and larkspur. Plant out pond plants in aquatic compost which is low in nutrients, and before submerging cover with a heavy layer of gravel. This prevents the soil from floating away and stops fish disturbing the roots. Waterlillies and other clump forming aquatic plants can be divided now. It is a good time to sow spring flowering biennial plants such as wallfowers, bellis perennis, forget me nots, sweet williams, and winter flowering pansies. Edibles If you’re interested in self-sufficiency – this is a good time to sow veg. Try French and runner beans, beetroot, carrots, parsnips and salad crops, also try cabbages and kales. Also sow sweetcorn, marrows and courgettes. To provide crops throughout the season, don’t sow the seeds all at the same time, but a new batch every couple of weeks. Plants that are growing steadily in the greenhouse can start to be hardened off such as tomatoes, peppers, aubergines and squashes. However some protection through chilly nights will still be required. In warmer areas plant outdoors from mid-May into fertile, wellprepared soil. If you didn’t have time to sow tomatoes earlier in the year, many garden centres have young plants on sale, try bush varieties such as Red Alert and Tornado. Herbs such as basil, coriander, dill, and culinary fennel may also be sown directly into the soil now in a sunny free-draining position. Make fortnightly sowings of rocket and other salad crops saving a small fortune throughout the summer

months! Strawberry plants will be in the shops now, but put some straw around the bases to stop mud splash. Lawns It is a great time to seed and lay your lawns. If you lay turf make sure it does not dry out or it will shrink and do not walk on it for 2 to 3 weeks. Existing lawns could be given a new lease of life by seeding any bare patches and top dressing. If you haven’t already done so, weed and feed your lawns as the weeds are actively growing now. Maintenance Keep on top of your weeds! This cannot be stressed enough. A few minutes hoeing once a week will produce a relatively weed-free border all year. Hoeing is best done when it is sunny with a dry wind. Towards the end of the month trim your hedges and topiary. Provide supports for your climbers and tie in wayward shoots. Start providing supports for herbaceous plants. Start low and build upwards as large canes now will look unsightly. Water any containers now that it is getting warmer as the soil is prone to drying out fast. Also give potted plants such as lilies a good feed. This is the best time to feed and weed your lawn. A more organic method of treating weeds is to pour some salt or hot water on the old weed. But don’t get any on the lawn! Turn over your compost heap giving the materials a chance to break down and allow the air to circulate through. Try some mulch to prevent the weeds from coming through. Make sure and feed your bulbs at this time of the year. Give newly planted plants a good soak to help them get established.
