There's much to be learned from simple peasant wisdom. Consider the
traditional rhyme:
"When buds do burst on the sukebind tree,
'Tis time to spread your 2-4-5-T."

Oh and don't forget

"when piglets fly and puppies moo
'tis time to paint your fencing blue".

Or on the other hand

"when soil is warm and breezes gentler
'tis time to visit a garden centre"

Cheeky woman! Now you've got to do one to rhyme with 'nursery'. ;-))
