It seems spring has sprung here at The Alchemist’s Studio! The lilacs and haskaps have big juicy buds and the rhubarb is poking it’s head out of the ground and saying hi, bringing thoughts of crisps and an oh so dry slightly sweet refreshing wine.
My seedling starts are taking off. I should have enough tomatoes to open my own Italian restaurant this year! One of my favourite spring time activities is starting new plants from cuttings and dividing plants. This year I have plans to propagate some currants, elderberries and grapes! The best part is that I will not have to go to a garden store, and given the state of the world, that is a very good thing.
