13th February 1813

Planted Gooseberry bushes also red and black Currants.

Our guest blogger, Mr A Muirhead, comments that Dr Lucas was possibly a mite optimistic with his planting:  ‘A Gardener’s Kalendar, adapted to the climate of Scotland’  published with the British Almanac and Universal Scots Register For 1808 recommends planting fruit bushes as a task for March.

Based on our current weather, the Gardener’s Kalendar may still have a point!
