Christmas Gift Ideas
If you've been thinking of growing asparagus and if like me your parents / partner / children have been asking what you've got on your christmas list why not get them to help you get started. Planting an asparagus bed is setting something in motion that will give you years of pleasure (and you'll be able to share your produce with the gift giver).
