Shortest Day Of The Year

Author: Ashley Warren Published: 21st December 2012 12:54

Ah! The Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year. We are on the way to longer days and shorter nights. Ah! The Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year. We are on the way to longer days and shorter nights.

In his last pre Christmas blog with AboutMyArea/NN12 Ashley Warren of Towcester's Bell Plantation says, "Ah! The Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year. We are on the way to longer days and shorter nights. The Winter Solstice has been slightly overshadowed by Christmas. Yule (celebration of the rebirth of the sun) is a time throughout time that honours love and new birth, as well as the collective unity of man.

"Just as Christmas celebrates the birth of Christ, Yule celebrates the birth of the Sun God – child of the Goddess in the Pagan belief system. Many plants are used to celebrate this time of year Holly, Mistletoe (less popular now than ever, as we have quite a bit left at the Garden Centre!), Spruce trees and the Yule log.

"Warmer, brighter, longer days chitting potatoes, sowing seeds, propagation, green shoots and sticky buds on the Horse chestnuts great images to get you through the cold months ahead.

"It really is tough out in the garden, there is really not a bunch to do while it is so wet. Will it ever dry up?

"Take advantage of the situation and chill out over Christmas.

"I am pleased to say we only have a few lovely non needle drop trees left approx 60. We have loads of houseplants and gifts for those fellas like me that do everything at the last minute.

"We are open all weekend and close Christmas Eve at about 3.30pm.

"I would really like to thank you for your support and look forward to helping you with your gardens and “the great outdoors” next year.

"I hope you all have a wonderful happy family Christmas."
