    Spring! I love the hope and optimism of the first new greenery appearing. And an al fresco coffee on a crisp morning.

  • Eileen Lees December 4, 2020 at 8:43 pm

    My favourite season is Spring because of the anticipation of renewal and rebirth. Life springs anew and everything is vibrant and full of promise of things to come.

  • Kathryn Furnell December 4, 2020 at 8:44 pm

    Summer. Those lovely long days spent in the garden right until the light has faded to nothing.

  • Elaine Maxwell December 4, 2020 at 8:45 pm

        Winter as I can dream I will keep control of my garden next year and win my fight with the slugs.

  • susan wood December 4, 2020 at 8:45 pm

    Spring is my favourite season now, because it heralds the start of longer evenings, and all the new growth. A very optimistic season. I used to prefer Autumn (for the colours and smells, and the warmth still in the atmosphere). However, now it’s Spring for me.

  • Penny Whittle December 4, 2020 at 8:47 pm

    Autumn as I adore all the beautiful colours, especially my new but small cotinus. Stunning nature x

  • sam thomlinson December 4, 2020 at 8:48 pm

    spring; bulbs blossom new life

  • Andrea Upton December 4, 2020 at 8:55 pm

    My favourite season in the garden is summer, because that is when I am harvesting fruit and vegetables to enjoy! You really cannot beat a tomato picked and eaten straight from the plant while it is still warm from the sun

  • niall O'Grady December 4, 2020 at 9:04 pm

    Spring, watching the potential start to reveal itself

  • Christine Ball December 4, 2020 at 9:06 pm

    My favourite season in the garden is the Spring, because I start to see all of the bulbs previously planted coming into bloom as well as my grass growing. I can also start to get outside far more, spruce up my benches and fence panels with more preservative but more importantly, it will allow me to plan a potential holiday during the summer months.

  • Lisbeth December 4, 2020 at 9:08 pm

    Really hard to choose just one as there are joys to all seasons. I will choose the time in the late summer/ early autumn when apples can be picked to eat.

  • Pauline Jollands December 4, 2020 at 9:16 pm

    Spring is my favourite season when all the plants burst into life, trees put on their green coat and I plant the vegetable seeds to grow into lovely food to eat.

  • Natalie McDermott December 4, 2020 at 9:16 pm

    Summer because we spend so much more time in the garden in the fine weather and I love picking fresh strawberries from our strawberry patch with my children and seeing how many we can collect each day

  • Janette Pryor December 4, 2020 at 9:28 pm

    I like autumn, particularly early autumn when still light enough to spent the evening in the garden, I have both fruit and produce to enjoy and the colours are beautiful.

  • Emma Hawes December 4, 2020 at 9:33 pm

    I love the promise of Spring.

  • Miriam Cheeseman December 4, 2020 at 9:39 pm

    My favourite season is Spring as the days warm up and get longer it is exciting to see new life in the flower beds.

  • Bridget Mellor December 4, 2020 at 9:40 pm

    I just adore Spring After the bare bleakness of Winter the garden emerges into a life affirming surge of growth mosses and bulbs bring forth scent and colour and buds burst open and the birds serenade this loveliest of seasons

  • Debby December 4, 2020 at 9:45 pm

    My favourite season in the garden is summer because it’s warmer, sunnier and the results of all the spring planting are evident: pretty flowers and salad, vegetables and herbs fresh from the garden to plate, and juicy strawberries whenever we want them (usually enough to share a few bits with our lovely neighbour too). In spring I love to watch the adult birds and squirrels taking food to the nests/dreys and the dog & vixen filling their mouths as much as they can to take food home to their earth with that year’s cubs waiting, but in summer we are properly introduced to all the new animals. I love to see the different birds fledging and sometimes the adults will brood two, or even three new families. Baby squirrels are cute and it’s fun watching them learn from their parents and getting to know the trees in their now big world. Fox cubs playing on the lawn, tumbling, practice-pouncing, pleading with their parents for extra food. I love how the adult foxes will line the cubs up outside my kitchen window if the nightly food offerings have been a bit sparse as a big hint to provide more (I’m sure they know I can’t resist finding them something else!) I’m happy to spend my summer days pottering in the garden, tidying up, keeping things nice or lazing in my hammock, reading a good book or doing puzzles.

  • Suzette Payne December 4, 2020 at 9:46 pm

    I love the Summer, being out in the warmth, and seeing all the plants bursting into beautiful colour. I love to sit out and contemplate with my cup of coffee in the morning.

  • hazel pickles December 4, 2020 at 9:48 pm

    If I were to choose a special season I think it might have to be this last summer in particular as I’ve been more or less housebound for three years after open heart surgery then.cancer .This last summer I got out sometimes and smelled the flowers .A motto I’ve had in life has been “,never be too busy to stop and smell the flowers” . So this year though it’s been forced on me it’s also been an immense pleasure to do just that.

  • jackie December 4, 2020 at 10:01 pm

    springtime, a season of new beginnings.Full of hope and growth for feeling positive about the year ahead

  • Angela Ferebee December 4, 2020 at 10:13 pm

  • Shirley Buck December 5, 2020 at 1:13 am

    I love the summer as all the roses and flowers are blooming and smell gorgeous reminds me so much of my late husband he loved his flowers and rose bushes so I’ve got a space where I put rose bushes just for him, they are lovely bright colours and I know he will love them, brings back lots of lovely memories. Thank you for the opportunity to enter.

  • dee December 5, 2020 at 2:28 am

  • marilyn hull-parkes December 5, 2020 at 4:45 am

    It has to be Autumn when all the Colours are appearing and late flower,s are still in bloom, and there is that special Autumn smell in the air

  • Isobelle Suzanna Forde December 5, 2020 at 4:49 am

    My favourite season is summer as there is so much happening, my lavender is permanently covered in insects the lovely scents from the plants, occasional frog basking in the pond like a Navy Seal. The birds have got fledglings learning the ropes, the amazing light and warm long days, the compost heap breaks down much quicker (yay) and it’s a riot of lovely colours to sit out and enjoy with a nice brew or glass of wine !☀️

  • Sheila Bowden December 5, 2020 at 6:45 am

    My favourite time in the garden is anytime. I love my garden and with the co-vid pandemic, it has kept me sane. We moved into a new house 18 months ago. After getting the house sorted, we started on the garden. We have had over 20 tons of topsoil delivered which was dumped on our front drive. It all had to be barrowed to our back garden. We have almost 80% of the garden laid out and planted up. This coming spring we will construct our raised beds for fruit and vegetables in the area behind the garage. Panting so far has been to encourage wildlife. My husband doesn’t know this but I have a remote camera for him for Christmas to record all our visitors.

  • Helen Smith December 5, 2020 at 7:30 am

    I love spring, seeing the bright green shoots starting to emerge while spending time in the greenhouse sowing seeds ready for the year ahead. Fab.

  • Juley Goodwin December 5, 2020 at 8:12 am

    It has to be Soring. The anticipation of the new growing year, sorting my seeds into planting order , reviving my pots of lilies cleaning the greenhouse, starting new projects and watching the clematis grow. It’s a season of hope and I love it.

  • Jacqueline Quinn December 5, 2020 at 8:15 am

    Definitely Autumn, the changing colours heralding colder weather, a still autumn day, bright birch leaves falling onto dark earth, outdoor fire…nothing better.

  • Carol December 5, 2020 at 9:18 am

    My favourite season is summer when the garden is most colourful, in full leaf and bloom with beautiful flowers and fuller coverage. Summer evenings sitting in the garden with the flowers and plants reflecting light are so relaxing, delightful.

  • christine westlake December 5, 2020 at 12:25 pm

    I love spring , love the spring colours also the bird song and all the new activity that the wildlife brings

  • Helen C Shaw December 5, 2020 at 1:01 pm

    Autumn with its kaleidoscope of colours, love walking in the crunchy leaves watching the gold and amber leaves swaying in the breeze. A cool crisp day with a clear blue sky makes one feel so refreshed and alive, it is the season for all the senses.

  • Susan B December 5, 2020 at 1:36 pm

    Summer first, last and always. The joy of seeing everything in bloom and leaf and the birds and insects thriving is an absolute delight.

  • Linda Milward December 5, 2020 at 1:46 pm

    I like Spring as everything starts coming to life, including me.

  • Hayley Atkins December 5, 2020 at 2:05 pm

    My favourite season is autumn. I love the ( usually) still warm days, the glorious colours of the leaves, spiders ‘webs shining in the morning dew and the planting of lots and lots of bulbs for a spectacular display in the spring.

  • Claire December 5, 2020 at 2:15 pm

    Early Summer is my favourite time. The garden is full of colour and scent with the promise of lots yet to come.
    It’s not too hot either so plenty of time can be spent gardening too!

  • sandi green December 5, 2020 at 2:23 pm

    Summer, love seeing all the bees and butterflies feeding on the flowers.

  • Matilda December 5, 2020 at 2:31 pm

    Winter for sure! I love all the frost, the red berries against the snow and the winter flowering plants! 🙂

  • Valerie Brown December 5, 2020 at 2:53 pm

    My favourite time is the Spring – time of renewal, new life and optimism. I love the lengthening days, the spring blossoms and the new green shoots

  • Julie Johnson December 5, 2020 at 3:04 pm

    Autumn, as I love cleaning up the leaves to see all the beautiful colours, lovely bronze and yellows. Gorgeous

  • Kathryn Hipkin December 5, 2020 at 3:14 pm

    Spring is my favourite because everything is awakening up again, light and colour have returned once more and I rejoice in it.

  • David Reed December 5, 2020 at 3:28 pm

    Winter because i love the cold and snow

  • Carol W. December 5, 2020 at 3:29 pm

    Autumn is my favourite season, as it starts to cool down, the leaves change colour and drop and there’s the promise of a calmer, slower pace to life coming along. I also love cool crisp days when you kick through dried fallen leaves. As I’m certainly not a child anymore this does lead to a few strange looks from other people until they see I’m having fun and they smile back at me.

  • Sally-Ann Bannister December 5, 2020 at 3:45 pm

    Spring, there is nothing to match the first green shoots coming through, leading to the anticipation of a bumper crop in later months

  • Charlotte isobelle December 5, 2020 at 3:46 pm

  • Joanne Beale December 5, 2020 at 3:57 pm

    Spring is my favourite time of year. Love to see the garden gradually springing to life again after winter. Love starting to prepare the allotment ready to plant our vegetables

  • Katie December 5, 2020 at 4:19 pm

    Late summer into early autumn – having worked hard in the garden all Spring and Summer, the best of the produce is ready for harvesting and preserving, there is amazing late summer colour and just the tiniest hint of cooler weather around the corner!

  • david cavender December 5, 2020 at 4:20 pm

    I really prefer the long hot barmy days of summer -with so much enjoyment of being in the garden and enjoying BBQ’s with family and friends well into the night, with jolly music to keep us buoyed up, with the lingering flames of candles in the background under the starry nights.

  • Marylyn Hammersley December 5, 2020 at 4:37 pm

    I love the Summer with all the roses in bloom and the bedding plants giving a real splash of colour. This has been a strange year in many ways for the garden, I still have geraniums and agapanthus in bloom in December, who would have thought, Isn’t nature wonderful

  • kathryn davies December 5, 2020 at 4:39 pm

    I love seeing everything starting to come back to life in the Spring.

  • Frank E. Davidson December 5, 2020 at 5:15 pm

    I love spring because it has been cold and dark for so long and I can come out from under my duvet. The spring brings focus in planning and sowing, though I have to learn from scratch each year as I put the garden completely out of mind from late August when it becomes unpleasant to be outdoors.
    Unfortunately spring also brings a compulsion to buy new equipment I can’t really afford.

  • Claire Smith December 5, 2020 at 5:21 pm

    Late spring when some of my favourite flowers such as Dicentra start to flower.

  • Katy Wright December 5, 2020 at 5:28 pm

    Spring, when the garden is coming back to life

  • Marilyn Bracher December 5, 2020 at 6:48 pm

    Autumn – the harvest and my primitive, basic need to preserve and store for the Winter!

  • Margaret Cromie December 5, 2020 at 6:51 pm

    I love winter because of how brave and hardy some plants are. The first snowdrops peeping through the melting snow and ice are amazing . I love the Holly trees and the berries that entice the thrushes in . I love how clean and bright the garden looks after a fall of snow and how the evergreens stand tall providing a safe resting place for the birds.

  • Anne Parmenter December 5, 2020 at 8:10 pm

    Autumn… I can eat the fruits of my labour!

  • Mike Eckersley December 5, 2020 at 9:22 pm

  • Jules Henley December 5, 2020 at 9:30 pm

    This year I have really appreciated the summer – with the colours and scents and when all the fruits and vegetables come to fruition . I have been learning how to use them to bake and cook and preserve bringing the garden into the home.

  • GLENDA PROFIT December 5, 2020 at 10:00 pm

    My favourite season in the garden is Spring, new bulbs shyly showing their heads, seeds being planted inside and out in the hope of colour and flavour in the summer and the birds returning and looking for suitable places to raise their offspring

  • Sylvia Dixon December 5, 2020 at 10:07 pm

    Has to be Springtime, everything is so green and vibrant so much to do, preparation, sowing, planting,arranging, buying, it goes on and on in a wonderful way. And Gardener’s World starts back up again, hello Monty!

  • Alison Bruce December 6, 2020 at 8:23 am

    My favourite season in the garden is the summer. This is when all the fruits of your labour are at their peak. You can spend your time at the allotment just picking vegetables and both the garden and allotment look their best and hopefully the sun is shining so you can sit and enjoy.

  • claire woods December 6, 2020 at 8:34 am

  • Jackie December 6, 2020 at 7:36 pm

    Summer is my favourite time. I love seeing the garden with flowers in full bloom and veg boarders growing up with yummy delights.. Plus fruit bushes and trees swelling with fruits. With longer days I will enjoy gardening whilst feeling the sun go down on my back. Or, enjoy a relaxing evening just sitting and chatting outside-appreciating the lovely view.

  • Gillian Hitchen December 6, 2020 at 7:50 pm

    Autumn, beautiful fruit and the gorgeous colours of the turning leaves

  • Earlene Williams December 7, 2020 at 12:56 pm

    I can’t choose one season! Winter is the most exciting, of course, because that’s when I start my seeds and feel the promise most keenly, sort of like being pregnant. The Babies are here in the spring, and I feel the momentum as they grow toward self-sufficiency. Summer is its own delight because everything comes to fruition and my family can enjoy such a variety of fresh foods. Then there’s Fall, when I make up chutneys, safts, jams, dried flowers, and packets of herbs to be given as holiday gifts. And in the midst of this pandemic, I’m grateful for every day of the year.

  • Nathalie Thomson December 7, 2020 at 2:17 pm

    • Gill Smith December 9, 2020 at 1:33 pm

      My favourite season is Spring. Everything suddenly starts to come to life. Little leaf buds ready to burst open, tiny green shoots emerge from the soil and the birds are busy building nests to support new life too. On sunny Spring days the first butterfly arrives filling my heart with joy that life is made better by the beautiful elements of Nature.

  • James Travis December 8, 2020 at 2:03 pm

    Summer, nice and warm and can have Beer, BBQs and sunbathe

  • Anita Bekker December 8, 2020 at 9:04 pm

    I love the autumn…it’s as if the earth is breathing a sigh of relief, after all the bustle of spring and summer, and snuggling down under a beautiful multicoloured quilt, getting ready to settle into the well deserved sleep of winter.

  • Mark R December 8, 2020 at 9:35 pm

    Spring when the snowdrops are out, perennials are showing signs of life, and I can start sowing seeds.

  • Jess Buttermore December 9, 2020 at 4:19 am

    Winter! It’s the time when my gardening imagination runs wild! I buy all the seeds, draft and redraft how my garden beds will be filled. It’s the time to dream of the garden i will work so hard to sow, cultivate and harvest in the year ahead. Its when I prepare the garden beds and the soil so that everything I crow has strong beginnings and a good foundation. It’s the time each year when anything is possible!

  • Patricia Bowley December 9, 2020 at 12:13 pm

    My favourite season is Spring. I love to see all the new growth from bulbs, perennials and shrubs, the promise of colour and the way leaves unfold with the magic of all nature has to offer.

  • Mel December 9, 2020 at 1:15 pm

    Spring is my favourite season when the soil begins to warm up & plants burst into life, bulbs emerge & light levels improve so I can garden for longer

  • Clemmie December 10, 2020 at 7:18 am

    I love late spring the most; when the blossom is in the trees and the road verges are full of frothy cow parsley.

  • Kayleigh Beirne December 10, 2020 at 11:05 am

    Autumn because I love harvesting all my goodies then!

  • Amanda McCormack December 10, 2020 at 12:28 pm

    I love spring time because I just can’t help the instinct to go crazy and prepare for growing but I’d have to say that nothing beats the Summer sunshine and seeing the fruits of my labour in the garden.

  • Lisa D December 11, 2020 at 8:02 am

    Summer because it’s lighter for longer meaning that it gives more time to work in the garden.The flowers are all in bloom,full of colour and it all looks so beautiful

    My favourite season in the garden is early spring. I love to see the eager little bulbs pushing through the snowy, icy soil. I love to spend time in the greenhouse planting my seeds and preparing the beds ready to receive the plants when they are ready.

  • Andrew Rodwell December 12, 2020 at 12:26 am

    Spring because of the excitement of warmer days and green shoots to come.

  • Kevin McGovern December 12, 2020 at 12:11 pm

  • pete c December 13, 2020 at 2:47 am

    its got to be Spring for me ; Putting in a lot of the hard work then so I can reap the benefits in my garden later in the year

    • Jamie Butt December 14, 2020 at 9:40 am

      I love to see the garden come to life in spring, it’s an amazing mood booster to see the teeny green shoots and tightly coiled buds starting to appear

  • Sonia Williams December 13, 2020 at 11:22 am

    Spring, because that’s when I start planting in my greenhouse to feed everyone in the summer.

  • Victoria Prince December 13, 2020 at 11:51 am

    I like autumn. It’s a little less overwhelming than summer (though I suppose that’s my own fault – I need to not plant so much!) but there are still plenty of things to be harvested, and the autumn fruit starts to produce. I also love watching things change colour.

  • Victoria Heffernan December 13, 2020 at 12:55 pm

    I love autumn, all the changing leaves and plants with interesting foliage really take centre stage

  • Laura Pritchard December 13, 2020 at 1:42 pm

    Spring as I can start getting everything ready for our garden and allotment

    Autumn as I love all the beautiful colours and I can tackle some of the bigger re-designing projects that do not get done during the growing season.

  • Lona Jobes December 13, 2020 at 4:02 pm

    Summer. So i can sit back, relax and appreciate the fruits of my labour

  • Joan Workman December 13, 2020 at 4:18 pm

    My favourite garden season is the Autumn. I love the foliage colours as well as the plants which come into their own – the asters and dahlias, plus all the lovely seed-heads of plants which have finished flowering. Best of all, it’s the season of hope, because I start looking forward to the Spring when all my hard work planting bulbs will hopefully come to fruition.

  • David Blair December 13, 2020 at 4:37 pm

    THE blossom of July colour colour and colour are the rewards of a years work

  • Anthea Holloway December 13, 2020 at 6:26 pm

    I love the spring when I can get going again and start to grow my flowers and vegetables and plant out the seedlings too.

  • HR December 13, 2020 at 8:55 pm

    Autumn. Plenty of fresh produce, beautiful, fresh, still flowers in bloom, varied jobs to be done, lots of next season produce to plant or sow.

  • Paul Maxwell December 13, 2020 at 9:51 pm

    Love the spring when my flowers and plants in the garden start to spring into life

  • Charlotte F December 13, 2020 at 10:23 pm

    Spring because you start to see the results of your hard work!

  • Leslie Evans December 14, 2020 at 6:45 am

    Spring, To see all the flowers breaking out if the ground.

  • Bev Cannar December 14, 2020 at 9:14 am

    Definitely spring, when life starts to unravel, the bulbs come into life and you know the warmer months are coming, it’s time for all the nice jobs , seeds need potting , ferns come out of their winter hibernation and birds are busy building nests ready for their young

  • Roz Walker-Smith December 14, 2020 at 9:37 am

    It has to be summer for me as things begin to bloom and you can see the fruits of your labour.

  • Patricia Hofmann December 14, 2020 at 11:05 am

    Summer, warmer days and the fruits of the labour in the garden are paying dividends.

  • Diane Duggan December 14, 2020 at 12:47 pm

    I like Autumn because I can pick apples off my tree and I like to see everything change colour and leaves start to fall.

  • lynn neal December 14, 2020 at 1:03 pm

    Spring is my favourite season in the garden because I love to see everything emerging and waking up after the cold winter and the promise of wonderful things to come in the following seasons!

  • Alison Clark December 14, 2020 at 1:06 pm

    Summer because I can look after and tend all my ots with the sun on my back , although this year has been the hardest having my garden saved me I know my neighbour said the same thing.

  • Mel Pennie December 14, 2020 at 3:33 pm

    I love the start of the Spring time
    When everything starts to come alive
    Plants that slept through winter months
    Now search for early sun to thrive
    Buds and leaves come back on trees
    Flowers begin to bloom
    Time to shop for seeds and plants
    Out in my garden morn til noon!

  • Angella Willis December 14, 2020 at 3:35 pm

  • Susan K December 14, 2020 at 5:45 pm

    I love the early autumn, when the leaves have changed colour but not yet started to fall and the summer perennials are still in bloom

  • Bridget Johnson December 14, 2020 at 5:51 pm

    Spring because the garden and countryside come to life. The dried up looking bulbs you planted in Autumn push through the cold soil and produce beautiful plants it’s wonderful

  • MJ December 14, 2020 at 6:29 pm

    Winter. Especially a cold and crisp one.
    It marks an end to things.
    Mother nature gives us a chance for a deep breath, sit down & cup of tea before the year resets and the business of spring.
    A cleansing moment for the mind, giving you a chance to stop and take stock of life before the planning and adventures of the year ahead.

  • Mari Evans December 14, 2020 at 6:42 pm

    Mine is the start of spring, seeing the snow drops and crocuses poking there heads up through the soil.
    The first signs of the bees buzzing around the Daffodils. This is the time to plant veg seeds.
    You know the warmer weather is upon us.

  • Alex McKay December 14, 2020 at 6:50 pm

    Id say right now…winter! Im just sitting down, planning my garden for next year. Some changes, and some new seeds and plants. To be honest I love every season but I’m happy now planning.

  • Ross Leech December 14, 2020 at 7:47 pm

    I love Summer the most as it’s when we can reap the most rewards of our vegetable patch, enjoying them while dining outside.

  • Donna Lamont December 14, 2020 at 8:23 pm

    I like springtime, days are getting longer and you have the thrill of see your sown seeds spouting into life.

  • Patricia Avery December 14, 2020 at 8:25 pm

    I don’t have a favourite season…..I love hem all because as each season comes and goes there is always something different to see and do. Hubby and I see the garden as another room of our house and lavish it with much love and attention. It repays us many times over with delicious organic fruit and veg, beautiful floweres intersperrsed amongst them and an abundance of wild life . It also provides us with a great place to sit and relax in…….much needed as we are now both 73!

  • Andrea A December 14, 2020 at 8:31 pm

    Spring is my favourite season in the garden as everything is starting to spring into life and pop through the soil.

  • Victoria Barker December 14, 2020 at 8:48 pm

    Autumn is my favourite. As a kid it’s always the most exciting with conkers, bonfire toffee, fallen leaves and fireworks. As an adult it’s the ending of another year with a slide into winter and a chance to take stock before the new spring begins.

  • Fiona Parr December 14, 2020 at 9:25 pm

    Spring when all the new shoots come through , it’s so nice to feel the soil has come alive again .

  • Ruth Philpott December 14, 2020 at 10:17 pm

    Spring when everything starts to come back to life!

  • Christine Lockley December 14, 2020 at 11:06 pm

    Spring – seeing everything bursting into life, watching the wildlife returning to my garden and spending a bit more time outdoors

  • A.E. ADKINS December 14, 2020 at 11:25 pm

    Spring , the season of, as yet, unfulfilled potential
