Spring starts when?

"We want to get into the garden again, when does spring start this year?"

Oh yes, the word is out, spring is on the way and wasn't it great to wave goodbye to January? 

Many businesses are driven by the seasons and of course, we are no exception.

Spring is when people venture outside again and consider their garden and all things related to their garden. It's when they start to get enthusiastic about their outdoor lifestyle and the forthcoming summer months.

As we all know, the weather's not always kind to us here in the UK, but nevertheless we love our gardens and the statistics are there to prove it.

Last year in the UK we spent well over £34,000,000,000 on Home and Garden products, that's up around £5,000,000,000 since 2012.

As we stated in our recent blog post, the trend is definitely growing and it all starts in the spring and that's very, very soon.

If you want to know exactly when it's all likely to start and why, and what we've been up to and how you can get prepared with just a little help from us, we've got some very interesting information for you.

Spring starts when?

But first things first, when exactly is spring? 

Charlotte Armitage, Citizen Science officer at the Woodland Trust tells us: 

How is the first day of spring defined?

There are two main definitions for the first day of spring:

Spring equinox: normally around 20 March, this is the astronomical first day of spring. This is when daylight and night-time hours are the same length wherever you are in the world, depending on whether or not you are entering spring or autumn of course! The word equinox is based on Latin aequus (equal) and nox (night).

Meteorological: weather scientists split the year into quarters and spring takes place from 1 March until 31 May. The quarters are based on annual temperature cycles and are used for statistical purposes as the dates remain the same year on year.

So we've got a few weeks before it's officially spring, however, if we look outside now that the evenings are getting brighter (a bit) we may see that there's quite a lot to do.

If you've got patios and paving on pathways, you might have a number of issues to contend with before everything starts to look great again, these issues can include Blackspot, Algae or just run of the mill winter dirt.

We can help with those problems, we've got the products right here for you.

Once the cleaning is over, the fun begins, right?
