Are You Planning An Event This Year? Most of us at some stage of our busy lives will need to cater for an important event be it a Wedding, Christening, Birthday, Special Anniversary, or Passing of Exams. Immediately several questions are first and foremost in our minds: • How much will it cost? • Where will we hold it?

A little time to discuss the planning and catering for your special event whatever it may be will enable you to relax in the knowledge that all those worries associated with organising the event can be taken away ensuring your enjoyment and complete satisfaction on your special day! Sally Curtis Catering

• What sort of food shall we have? • How many people can we invite? To cater for an event in a hotel can be expensive. So many times I have been to visit a client and the problem faced is much that we would love to hold our celebration here, we don’t have a lot of room. A relatively small garden can house a marquee these days. With the new frame systems that are available they come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. This option can enable one to extend the guest list for a wedding or larger party without that never ending problem of the guest list. Other options can be making enquiries locally for venue’s that are available for hire. These are usually moderately priced and providing they have an adequate kitchen area can be an ideal solution. As an independent caterer for over 25 years, we can adapt to most situations as indeed I have had to sometimes deal with last minute anxieties but always ending up with a positive result. The benefits of a Caterer can mean that your precise requirements can be met both with your choice of menu and the venue.

March’s Gardening T ips From Paul Chatfield of Chatfield’s Garden & Property Services Trees and Shrubs There is still time to plant trees and shrubs if the task has not been already completed. Making sure the holes are dug big enough and deep enough for the root ball, also taking in consideration to use a good tree and shrub compost. Climbers and Wall-Plants Species and cultivars of Clematis that flower Summer & Autumn on new shoots made in the current season will benefit from a hard prune now. Roses The main pruning of bush and standard Roses should be carried out between the middle of the month and late March. Borders and Beds During mild spells weeds will start to grow. Deal with them as soon as they appear as they will be easier to remove. Bulbs and Corms Dahlia tubers in store for the Winter should be inspected to make sure that they are healthy and plump. Any bad patches should be cut away with a clean and sharp knife and dipped in Sulphur. Rock Gardens and Pools All leaves should have been removed by now. Mild spells may bring weeds & slugs, remove weeds while small and treat the slug s with slug bait (with suit able containers sunken in the ground, beer is a good tip.)

Fruit There is still time for both planting and pruning but try to complete task before new growth starts. Vegetables Seed potatoes should be removed from their bags and set to sprout in trays or shallow boxes (shed or greenhouse). Greenhouse and Frame Greenhouse should have been sterilized. Carnations and Chrysanthemums can be propagated from cuttings 55-60f (13-15c). Give free ventilation except on cold nights. House Plants Plants at home, particularly flowering ones need lots of light and free ventilation not stuck between blinds or curtains kept out of drafts and be careful not to over water, just damp. Always check how your plant looks. Chatfield’s Garden & Property Services North 2, Sway Storage & Workshops Barrows Lane, Sway, Lymington Hants, SO41 6DD Tel: 01590 682828 Mobile: 07821 610923

Lawns Prepare for the growing season by raking with good wire rake removing worm casts and rubbish from lawn. Cut lawn but not too short then weed feed and moss kill as early as one can depending on the weather.
