Welcome Hi everyone, Happy New Year, actually let me rephrase that, I wish you all a Happy and Very Healthy New Year. We all knew that Christmas would be a challenge, but the last minute restrictions definitely caught me on the hop! I was literally at the Tesco tills with two large Turkeys and a basket full of food when the government announced the new lockdown. Hubby, who was patiently waiting in the car listening to the news live, tried to call me, but too late. As I walked toward him in the car park he said “Boris has cancelled Christmas!”. I honestly thought he was joking, I was so disappointed. Thank goodness I have a freezer, but I’d never frozen fresh veg before and I had far more than three of use could eat! I’m sure many of you have a similar story to tell. My love of Christmas is not just about the socialising, I love the food, and with our numbers suddenly reduced, there was plenty of it. I must confess now, I ate two whole Christmas puddings over the period, with deliciously thick cream, just one portion was eaten by my son! I must pay the price now and get my weight back to normal for a family wedding that is supposed to take place in April. I’m so lucky that I can work from home, and continue to publish the magazines during this terrible pandemic. February brings Valentine’s Day, which will be a real challenge this year, but love will find a way to express itself, I’m sure! It will also be Mother’s Day on Sunday 14th March, so even if you can’t be with your Mum and give her a hug, make sure she knows you’re thinking of her. A hug - a year ago the power and importance of this simple interaction was so taken for granted, it has been the most difficult thing to be without, and also to hold yourself back from, who would ever have believed that this could happen to us. But there is now a light at the end of this tunnel, and I for one can’t wait to start hugging again – you’ve been warned!

It’s time to grab a spade, or perhaps a fork, and get planting. Autumn is widely viewed as THE best time for planting, but provided you get going fairly early in the year, then trees, shrubs, climbers or herbaceous plants will all have a decent amount of time to get established before the weather gets hotter and drier. If you have noticed that your garden has lacked colour, shape or perhaps perfume over the last few years then take a look at the spaces that need filling and go on a shopping trip. Start by clearing the soil properly by digging or forking it over and removing pernicious weeds or debris. Next, measure the space you have to offer, as it is important that the plant you choose will not outgrow its new home too quickly. It is worth jotting down the approximate measurements of the gaps you have to fill and at the same time making a note of how sunny or shaded the spot is. It is amazing what you find you have forgotten by the time you are in the garden centre. If you feel the need for a bit of springtime colour from shrubs you plant, then there should be a good selection to choose from right now – perhaps a flowering currant with flower trusses in red or pink, each up to 10cm (4in) long, a star

6

magnolia, Magnolia stellate, with breathtakingly beautiful white or palest pink star-shaped flowers on bare stems, or, if you have a biggish space, how about one of the amelanchiers, which are truly great value because they have tiny, very pretty white flowers with foliage that turns wonderfully fiery shades come the autumn. On acidic soils or in a good-sized pot full of ericaceous compost, camellias perform well and their large flowers in reds, pinks, yellows and white look great. There is Exochorda macrantha, ‘The Bride’, with delightful arching stems studded with tiny white flowers. The list goes on and on, but take time to wander around a favourite nursery or garden centre and you will be amazed at what is there and how it has the potential to transform you garden this spring and for years to come. When you have got your purchases home, try to get them planted as soon as possible. Dig a good-sized hole for each, making it several inches wider than the root ball all round, and fork the base and sides of the hole over thoroughly, especially if you garden on clay. On clay soils it is best to do as much soil preparation as possible with a fork, as this will be less likely to cause further compaction of the soil than if you use a spade.


The Garden If the soil is either heavy clay or extremely light and sandy, it is well worth digging a much bigger hole, gradually incorporating more of the ‘natural’ soil into the compost or planting mix as you get closer to the sides of the hole. Before planting, remove the pot and firmly tease out the roots – soaking the root ball in a bucket of water for an hour or two should help if they are quite congested. It is essential that you do this or else the plant may not ever get properly established, as its roots will not move out into their new surroundings. Ideally you’ll not buy a plant that is too pot-bound (I always recommend checking carefully before you buy) but if there are any really large, woody roots encircling the root ball you

may need to prune these out, so that you can release the remainder of the roots. The plant should be planted at the same depth that it was in its pot and make sure that just the roots, and no part of the stem, are below ground level. Watering in is necessary even if the soil seems fairly moist, as it helps to settle the soil around the fine roots. Stand back and admire your efforts, and at the same time check the stem is good and upright. Make a note of the plant’s precise name and details, or remove the label and keep it somewhere safe – that way you will never be stuck for information about how to look after your plant, or how big it may grow!

At Pippa’s website (www.pippagreenwood.com) you’ll find stylish cloches, practical and pretty plant supports, the fantastic SpeedHoe, gardening tools, Grower Frames, signed books and the ‘Grow Your Own with Pippa’ system. Or book Pippa for a gardening talk at your gardening club.

Sometimes we just can’t face a whole novel or autobiography. With these books, you can dip in and out whenever you have a spare five minutes. Back to Nature: How to Love Life and Save It – Chris Packham and Megan McCubbin Whether you’re an avid nature lover and wondering how to stop the catastrophic decline in biodiversity, or you’re feeling disconnected from the wild and want to reap the benefits of it once again, this is a great book to help you. There are lots of interesting titbits to digest over a coffee (ever wondered how trees communicate?) and plenty of ideas for how to take action. Dear NHS: 100 Stories to Say Thank You – Adam Kay Adam Kay brings us a series of essays and musings from a range of household names, from Malala Yousafzai to Dame Julie Walters and Johnny Vegas. Each tale is about how the NHS has stepped in to help the writer. There’s a story of a suspected heart attack that turned out to be trapped wind, several about household accidents (often involving kitchen knives) and plenty of sentimental stories to boot. Plus, all profits go to charity. Encounters: A Photographic Journey – Levison Wood Award-winning reportage photographer Levison Wood has travelled to more than 100 countries over the last ten years. Encounters brings together 140 of his images, along with text about each one. You’ll meet a young shepherd girl in Ethiopia, resourceful teenagers in the Congo, stranded nomads, fishermen in Yemen and families surviving in war-torn regions. The Repair Shop: Tales from the Workshop of Dreams If you love the TV series about expert craftspeople restoring much loved family heirlooms, you won’t want to miss the accompanying book. It goes into more detail about some of the most interesting items shown in the series, from a rusty miner’s helmet to a circus performer’s dress. It’s the book version of a mug of tea and hot buttered crumpet. Toksvig’s Almanac 2021 – Sandi Toksvig Fancy ‘An Eclectic Meander Through the Historical Year’? The main focus is on women that have been all but forgotten. There’s Begum Samru – an Indian dancer who led an army of mercenaries, Ida B. Wells – an activist and suffragist who co-founded the largest civil rights organisation in the United States, and Annette Kellerman, whose stunts including diving from 60 feet into a pool of crocodiles. There are also poems, trivia and other fascinating snippets. Sapiens: A Graphic Novel – Yuval Noah Harari et al. The original Sapiens is fascinating, but there’s an awful lot of information to take in. If you’re interested in the origin of humans, but want something a little easier to digest, try this instead. It’s the first volume in a graphic-novel adaptation of the global bestseller. Full-colour illustrations and straightforward text take the reader on a journey from the very birth of humankind. It’s absorbing, suitable for older children as well as adults and has a good spattering of humour throughout.

Ensure your bedroom has all the ingredients for a great night’s sleep. Lack of sleep affects our physical and mental health, and as many as one in three of us suffer from poor sleep. So, make your bedroom sleep-friendly: dark, quiet, tidy and comfortably warm. Start with the mattress First, decide whether you would prefer a sprung or non-sprung mattress. Sprung mattresses are filled with lots of springs and the best are individually ‘pocket’ sprung to adjust to the body and eliminate ‘roll-together’. An option is a sprung mattress ‘zoned’ across the middle to give extra support for heavier hips and shoulders, or made ‘half and half’, to provide different tensions on each side

of the bed. Another solution for sleeping partners of very different weights is a ‘zip and lock’ system of two different mattresses fastened together.

A soft, curving headboard could help your bed feel enclosed and cosy. Matilda Dove Grey bed, from £549; Amazonia Toile duvet cover set, £28; Farrah Palm Leaf ceiling fitting, £65; all Dunelm: 0845 165 65 65, dunelm.com.

Sprung mattresses can be filled with a variety of materials and tufted construction is generally considered better than quilting. In cheaper mattresses, fillings usually come in compact pads, while in better quality mattresses there will be layers of loose fillings in greater volumes. Look for a highquality mattress cover with hand stitching on the sides and sturdy handles to help with turning. Non-traditionalists might consider a nonsprung mattress where the choice of


The Home materials includes latex, memory foam, polyurethane foam and gel. These mattresses mould to the sleeper’s shape and are often warmer than sprung mattresses. Alternatively, ‘hybrid’ mattresses provide the traditional support and comfort of springs with a pressure-relieving, non-sprung top layer. What about the windows? Windows can be a source of early-morning light, and noise, heat loss and draughts at any time. For regularly opened single-glazed sash windows, specialist seals fitted into a rebate will improve draught-proofing, while secondary glazing is ideal for seldom-used windows. Well-fitting timber shutters can be at least as effective as double glazing. The traditional solution is a thick, floor-to-ceiling curtain with a thermal or blackout lining. Extend the curtain pole beyond the window edges so that light cannot creep in. If using blinds, thick, blackout versions fitted close to the wall are best. Don’t forget about the floor A fitted carpet with thermal underlay deadens sound and prevents draughts from suspended timber floors. If you prefer original timber floorboards, seal any gaps at the base of the skirting boards and add thick bedside rugs for extra comfort. Insulation added below the boards is also effective.

Staging Your House for a Sale

When you’ve decided it’s time to move, you want to attain the best price you can for your house without undertaking major renovations from which you’ll have no long-term benefit. Follow these tips to prepare your house for sale.

Clean everything

Surfaces, cupboards (inside too – buyers are nosey), carpets and bathrooms should be sparkling.

New kitchen?

Unless it’s truly unusable (or 70s ‘avocado’), a cheap new kitchen or bathroom will be a waste of money.

Declutter

Sell, give it away or take it to the recycling centre. You’ll need to do it when you move anyway.

Paint or not?

A few minor scuffs won’t matter. Peeling wallpaper and stained walls will.

Accessorise

Curtains, throws, tasteful pictures, houseplants and lighting.

First impressions

The front of the house and the hall is what your buyer will see first. How does yours look?

Depersonalise

Pics of your little darlings and travel souvenirs are only of interest to you.

Bright lights

In a showhome, every room will have the lights on. Do the same in yours, and make sure your lightbulbs are bright and windows are clean.

What’s this room?

If it’s supposed to be a dining room/spare bedroom, make it look like one even if you don’t use it.

What’s that smell? Don’t overpower the house with scent, but make it pleasant to walk into. And definitely don’t have a curry or fish the night before a viewing.

Make it neutral

You may love the purple spare room, your buyer will likely not.

Make space

If a room is crammed with furniture but you want to keep the pieces, put some into storage while you are selling.

Check Your Oil Tank Have you checked your oil tank lately? The Great British climate puts a number of pressures on heating oil tanks in your garden, and it is good practice to carry out a thorough check of your oil tank every 6 months. Many homeowners may not be aware that they are responsible for the condition of their tank. Pay particular care to warning signs of wear and tear that include: • • • • • •

Cracks or splits Rust Bulging Gauges not working An unusual oil smell The position of the tank: regulations are designed to protect tanks from a fire if started nearby. An oil tank needs to be at least 1.8 metres from any openings to buildings, unless a fire barrier can be deployed. Foliage covering the tank: keep the tank clear of foliage to ensure you can get around it to carry out regular checks. This also ensures the oil distributor can fill the tank safely.

Oil tank leaks can be costly to the environment, and to homeowner’s pockets. It is far better to maintain your tank’s condition than deal with the outcome of a damaged tank. Also, a well-maintained tank will keep a heating system running with fewer breakdowns, as water in the oil line is a major

cause for calls-outs. Putting off a tank inspection in an attempt to cut costs, or using an unregistered technician for servicing (who may not be checking oil tanks as part of an annual service) could well cost more in the long run. Oil Heating Oil Cookers Ltd are OFTEC registered, and always provide a report detailing observations of the tank, and any actions you need to take to prevent an oil spillage, at your annual appliance service. Since oil tanks have a design-life of 20 years, it is best practice to replace older tanks, and to act quickly if you notice wear and tear. As professional and experienced installers, we can visit to offer a free, no obligation quotation for a replacement tank, a tank move, water removal, or simply a new gauge or filter.
