Happy Christmas

Hello everyone, I hope you're all ready for the festive break.

This is actually the final 'Christmas card' I'll post as Editor of as I'm moving to a new role within Gardeners' World. I've loved editing the site and I'd like to thank you all for your support of the Forum over the last 11 years. I'm delighted to announce that my colleague Catherine Mansley is taking the reins as Editor of the site in the new year, so I sign off knowing it's in very safe hands and that she'll do an excellent job.

Wishing you all a Happy Christmas and a Peaceful New Year.

Take care,

Daniel Haynes
