ut back perennials and ornamental grasses to make way for new growth. Plant summer flowering bulbs in well prepared soil. If you have wet soil place a layer of grit in the bottom of the planting hole. Enliven your garden with some new varieties of herbaceous perennials such as hardy geraniums, heuchera, poppies etc. Have a continuous supply of flowers for cutting and bringing indoors by either planting suitable perennials such as lupins and delphiniums or by sowing annuals

such as cosmos, gypsophila, nicotiana, helichrysum, etc. Pot up canna rhizomes in a warm, light position to flower in the summer. This is the best month for planting new roses but never plant a new rose in soil that has grown a rose previously as the new one will suffer from rose transplant sickness. If you must have a rose in a particular place then you will have to change the soil at least 3ft all around the planting hole and 3ft deep. Much easier to find a new home. Prune established bush and standard roses and add a rose fertiliser around the base of the plant. Prune summer flowering shrubs such as buddleia, lavatera, hardy fuchsia and perovskia. Remove any plain green stems from variegated shrubs otherwise they will eventually revert to all green. Cut off the heads only of daffodils that have finished flowering. Leave all the foliage in place for at least six weeks so that the bulb can renew its energy for flowering next year.

Lawns Check that your mower is in good working order. Raise the mowing height for the first

See Page 30 for our Index of Advertisers cut of the season. New lawns can be made using turf but it is best to wait until late in the month or even into April before sowing grass seed. Towards the end of the month feed the lawn with a high nitrogen fertilizer.

Fruit and Vegetables If you didn’t prune your autumn fruiting raspberries, gooseberries or blueberries there is still time to do it now. Mulch all fruit with your own compost or well rotted farm manure but make sure it does not actually touch the stems of each plant as this can cause them to rot. Place cloches or fleece over strawberry plants to bring them on for an earlier crop. Remove the forcing cover on rhubarb. If the weather is suitable you can sow beetroot, broad beans, carrots, leeks, lettuce and other salad leaves, onions, parsnips, peas, radish, spinach and summer cabbage and cauliflowers. Make sure the ground is friable and sow to the depth shown on the packets. If you have a frost free greenhouse you can sow aubergines, cucumbers, peppers and tomatoes. Plant onion sets, shallots and garlic. At the end of the month plant early chitted potatoes and put maincrop potatoes in trays or boxes to chit. Any vegetables still left from winter will need feeding with Growmore or any balanced fertiliser. Regularly hoe vegetable beds so that weeds are not taking any available moisture or nutrients.

Wildlife Buy nesting boxes to attract birds to your garden. Hang them on a wall rather than from trees if you have cats coming into your garden. Carry on putting food out for birds but make sure there are now no large pieces of food in case the mother bird feeds it to fledglings. If your wildlife pond does not have any frogspawn try to get some from another pond that has plenty. Keep the bird bath topped up with water.

T���K L CAL ��Y L CAL We’re really lucky... our local area is full of wonderful small businesses

There are heaps of reasons to buy from local companies Here are 5 big reasons for using your local businesses: 1. They know their customers Local businesses understand people in the area. They’re quick to react to what their customers want and are able to meet the changing needs of the local population. This means they can offer you relevant and interesting products and services rather than the larger, more commercial companies that generally provide the same things no matter where you live.

2. They create jobs Shops in our towns create jobs within the local community. By purchasing from these smaller businesses, you’re helping to grow employment opportunities which in turn, makes the area a better place to live and work.

3. The experience There’s nothing quite like the personal touch that comes with the customer service in a local shop. They get to know you and can offer products and services that best meet your needs. Plus, they have an authenticity that the bigger brands can’t usually match. What’s not to like?!

4. They’re better for the environment Local businesses often source their products locally, which helps to reduce their carbon footprint.

5. Great deals - you’ll be surprised! Don’t assume that chain stores have the best deals - local businesses can have competitive pricing that you might not expect. Before you hit Google, take the time to have a look around your area and see what’s on offer. Which local businesses do you love?

St. Patrick’s Day WE CELEBRATE ST PATRICK’S DAY WITH AN AFFECTIONATE LOOK AT THE IRISH

W

hile these days it’s considered politically incorrect to make fun of a particular nationality or ethnic section there is nevertheless still a great deal of affection for the Irish and the perceived levels of common sense normally encapsulated in stories that usually begin ‘there was this Irishman.....’ So, to celebrate their great day - St Patrick’s Day - we’ve found a few lovely little stories that define the concept perfectly and sincerely hope that since there is absolutely no offence intended that none is taken! Enjoy... Murphy opened the morning newspaper and was dumbfounded to read in the obituary column that he had died. He quickly phoned his best friend Patrick. “Did you see the paper?” asked Murphy. “They say I died!!” “Yes, I saw it!” replied Patrick. “Where are yer callin’ from?” Finnigan says, “My wife has a terrible habit of staying up ‘til two o’clock in the morning. I can’t break her out of it.” “What on earth is she doin’ up at that time?” replied Keenan. “Waiting’ for me to come home,” says Finnigan. Reilly was on trial for armed robbery and after a lengthy trial and a brilliant

performance from his barrister the foreman of the jury stood and announced him to be not guilty. ‘That’s wonderful,’ yelled Reilly. ‘Does this mean I can keep the money?’ Mary accompanied her husband, Paddy, to the doctor’s. After his check up, the doctor called Mary into his office alone. He said, “Your husband is suffering from a very severe stress disorder. If you don’t do the following, your husband will surely die. Each morning, fix him a healthy breakfast. Be pleasant at all times. For lunch make him a nutritious meal. For dinner prepare an especially nice meal for him. Don’t burden him with chores. Don’t discuss your problems with him, it will only make his stress worse, and

most importantly, no nagging. If you can do this for the next 10 months to a year, I think Paddy will regain his health completely.” On the way home, Paddy asked Mary. “What did the doctor say?” “He said you’re going to die,” she replied. Paddy is sitting at home alone when he hears a knock on the front door. When he opens the door, he encounters two policemen, one of whom asks if he is married and, if so, whether they can see a picture of the wife. Paddy replies “of course” and runs back to get their wedding picture. The deputy looks carefully at the picture and then gravely says, “I’m sorry sir, but it looks like your wife’s been hit by a truck.” Paddy replies “I know, but she has a great personality, she’s an excellent cook, and she lets me play golf whenever I want!”

A ventriloquist is telling Irish jokes in Davy Byrne’s pub in Grafton Street, Dublin, when O’Leary, an irate Irishman, stands up shouting, ‘You’re making out we’re all dumb and stupid. I ought to punch you in the nose.’ The ventriloquist starts to say ‘I’m sorry sir, I........... ‘Not you,’ shouts O’Leary, ‘I’m talking to that little fella on your knee.’

Business Digital and Print - The Ideal Marketing Mix! Digital or print. Which is better? This is the wrong question. Instead, we should be asking how they can each serve as a launchpad for the other. Digital and print go together like fish and chips and can be a really powerful marketing combination to connect with potential customers. Here, we’ll talk about why you should be bridging the gap between digital and print and how you can use them to your advantage. So, what are the benefits of this strategy? The internet is chock-a-block with ads. Social media, search engines, emails… you name it! Combining a printed ad with your digital efforts can help to make your brand stand out and give it more prominence. It means that by covering more bases and having more reach, you’re giving people the best chance of seeing your ad which can build brand awareness. Simply put, multiple touchpoints results in a better chance of conversions! Here are a few ways to make it effective: Get consumer feedback Maybe your sales are booming, maybe they’re not. Either way, if you’re using both digital and print mediums, gathering feedback from consumers can help you pinpoint what part of your marketing is working. By asking people what prompted them

to get in touch, visit your site, or do whatever other action they performed, you can begin to understand their behaviour. It could have been a social media post that they found when scrolling through Facebook or it could be a printed ad that they saw in a local publication. Use calls to action (CTAs) to drive traffic Compelling CTAs can help to get your message across and ultimately, encourage people to take action. That action could be visiting a specific page on your website, calling your number to book an appointment or visiting your shop in person, etc. A CTA can be placed in a digital format or in print. You could experiment with different wording here and see which ones get the most engagement. Examples of calls to action include ‘Claim your free XXX’, ‘Talk to us!’ and ‘Buy now (then give them a reason to)’. Come to life with QR codes and personalised URLs QR codes can be placed, well, anywhere really! Whether you’re printing on t-shirts, magazine-type publications,

or window displays, they’re relatively straightforward to implement and even easier to track. They’re also convenient for on-the-go customers - they just need to scan it using their mobile. This kind of data can give you an interesting insight into how people are interacting with your business and how, when and where they’re connecting with you. Working best together In summary, by creating a cross-platform marketing strategy and analysing the findings, you can better gauge performance and the behaviour of your consumers.

Football - The ‘Boro

OPTIMISM - AND COMMON SENSE - RETURN TO THE RIVERSIDE

T

he most important aspect of the January transfer window is always the impact - immediate or otherwise - that the incoming players have on the squad. It was therefore interesting to hear Neil Warnock in his excellent press conference prior to the Reading game enthusing on the benefits of having characters like Bolasie, Kebano and Fisher coming in and lifting the players around them. It's very obvious that they have all settled into the squad well, and the performance of both Fisher and Kebano on the field has certainly increased the belief that this could be the start of something very special indeed. It should also be said, though, that having existing players return to availability has had a similarly dramatic effect. The two superb results against Huddersfield and Reading have certainly helped to restore optimism and enthusiasm around Teesside after an awful run since Christmas, with the league table as I write showing us a mere three points outside the play-off zone. And with home games against currently struggling Bristol City and Warnock's old club Cardiff to come, things could soon look

very different to the way they have in the last few weeks. The most important aspect of the upcoming fixture list, though, is that we can once again call on the best defensive partnership in the division after Dael Fry's recovery and the common sense showed in the rescinding of Paddy McNair's ridiculous sending off against Blackburn making them both available. The two incidents were very much connected as both involved studs, but the difference between them was huge. Fry was left badly injured after getting a boot in his face at head height, but neither immediate nor retrospective retribution was made against the offending player. The McNair challenge, meanwhile, saw him squarely take the ball before the impetus created by the challenge meant he connected with the Huddersfield player. He, though, was immediately sent off. The most disturbing similarity between the two incidents, of course, is that both saw us lose a vitally important player at a crucial time. The magnificent rearguard action in the Huddersfield game meant we still got the three points, but I still firmly believe the Blackburn result could have been so much

afford another poor run. It's great to see the impact that Ashley Fletcher has made in those two games, especially when he has previously not been the crowd's favourite player. That is surely perfect evidence of the remarkable effect Neil Warnock's man management has had on not only players but everyone around him. In addition I'm fairly convinced that the media must enjoy his press conferences much more than the stilted, mundane appearances that were typical of many of his predecessors. Consecutive wins obviously make a big difference to the look of the league table and if we can once again achieve that feat against Bristol City and Cardiff it will go a long way towards a really exciting end to the season. We are once more looking upwards and continuance of that happy situation will be a lot more than anyone could ever have envisaged this time a year ago.

different and I desperately hope that losing those three points will not prove crucial at the end of the season. It's ironic, of course, that the team currently holding that final play-off position has suddenly found itself with our former manager at the helm until the end of the season, with Jonathan Woodgate having been fortunately in the right place at the right time. And while I genuinely hope that he can ultimately make the kind of impact at Bournemouth that Gareth Southgate has achieved with England since being dismissed by 'Boro, I'd still be quite happy to take Bournemouth's place in the next few weeks. With the relatively small squad that Warnock has had to deal with for the first part of the season now well supplemented by both the new arrivals and the return of Grant Hall, Ashley Fletcher and imminently Marcus Tavernier, there is definitely a much more optimistic outlook, though we certainly can't
