Tackle any young weedsthat are starting to appear as the weather getswarmer and mulch with compost or manure –this preparation will pay dividends in a coupleof months when you’re ready to sow seeds andstart planting.clear paths of moss, lichenand weedsit’s a back breaking job that no one wants to do,particularly when it’s cold and wet outside, soas the weather warms up, get outside and getscrubbing. you’ll need a good stiff brush and abucket of salted, boiling water, which is anenvironmentally and pet friendly alternative toweed killer.cut the grassMid-spring is an ideal time to dust off themower and give the grass a regular mow, weedand feed.Plant trees and shrubsif you didn’t get round to planting the shrubsand trees you wanted to during autumn, theground should now be free from ground frostsand, therefore, soft enough for you to do sonow. spring is a great time to get plants, treesand shrubs fully established before wintercomes around again.678Pack down any roots that may havelifted during the cold weatherGround frost can cause roots to lift out of the groundand it’s important to pack these back down againduring spring to give your plants the best chance ofsurvival.gather leaves and make leaf mouldMake leaf mould from fallen leaves by putting them inbin bags with a small amount of water. Tie the tops ofthe bags and poke a few small holes in the side beforeplacing them in a secluded part of the garden – by thesummer you should have some nice leaf mould, whichis a great lawn conditioner and can be added to soiland plant pots to provide nutrition.install water buttsinstall water butts in your garden now to collectseasonal rainfall. not only does this help theenvironment, but also rain water is good for wateringericaceous plants such as camellias, rhododendronsand blueberries (tap water is often slightly alkaline).When installing a water butt make sure it is positionedbeneath a downpipe to make the most of the rainfall.Move deciduous shrubsWynyARd HALL GARdeninGif you have a badly placed deciduous shrub then nowis the time to move it while it’s dormant. Choose a stillday to prevent the roots drying out, then take a wideberth around the shrub when digging it up, preservingas much of the root ball as possible for the quickestestablishment in its new location. When plantingshrubs in their new position, place them at the samelevel in the soil that they were previously andremember to water them in thoroughly afterwards.www.wynyardhall.co.uk13

WynyARd HALL JAGuAR xKR-s ConVeRTiBLeTHe BiG CATsHoWs iTs CLAWsA few weeks ago we had aphone call from Jaguar –would we like to try the newXKR-S Convertible? Stupidquestion. Thankfully, our testrun coincided with thoselovely few days of warmweather we had in Februarywhere the temperature hitthe low teens.Why has it taken Jaguar so long tofinally start making cars like the xK,xJ and xf? e xK looks brilliant andit drives as well as it looks. eCabriolet is one of the most sexylookingcars on the road. no wonderthe Jaguar (and Land Rover) factory istaking on staff. it’s been a long timesince you had to wait for the Jaguar carof your choice. until recently, therewere fields of the things waiting for agood home.not only is the xK the fastest, mostpowerful rag top that Jaguar has everbuilt, it is also the most expensive,tipping the scales at £103,430. Wow.Mind you, the performance figures areequally eye watering. 0-60mph takes astaggering 4.2 seconds, and if you canfind a race track somewhere, you’llreach 186mph. fuel economy won’t bea concern for buyers but, just in caseyou wanted to know, it’s 23mpg.e 5.0 litre V8 engine delivers awhopping 550bhp. is not only givesyou the hugely impressive figuresmentioned above, it also gives you thesort of long-legged performance thatwould make a holiday express journeyto the south of france seem like anabsolute doddle.And don’t for one moment think thatthis is a car where you’ll feel every fagpaper that you ride over. e ride isunbelievably smooth, bearing in mindthat the suspension has been set up tohandle serious performance and theride height, when compared to theother xK models, has been dropped by10mm. is is a big, ferocious beast ofa car, but it drives like a pussy cat.We loved the interior – it oozes classand quality. it’s hard to think of a nicerplace to be. you’ll thoroughly enjoy thesound from the sports exhaust andyou’ll spend hours playing with theelectric roof which, when raised, does agood job of muffling the wind-rushoutside. And don’t forget, this is a4-seater. Granted, you wouldn’t want acouple of the newcastle falcons ridingshotgun, but the seats are fine for kidsor adults who don’t want to go very far.is Jaguar goes for growl and grunt.stick-on hairy chests are mandatory.is is a classic British sports car.32www.wynyardhall.co.uk


WynyARd HALL MAseRATi GRAnCABRio spoRTA fAsT LAdy;no Kidd-inGHere’s a lady that oozesstyle, grace, poise and is theultimate in high fashion.Oh, and here’s a picture ofJodie Kidd.now, we don’t want to be sexist here atthe Wynyard Hall magazine, but wereckon that the Maserati GranCabriosport looks better with a lady behindthe wheel. put it this way, Jodie Kiddis a Maserati fan so, if it’s good enoughfor her, it’s good enough for us.for starters, this is a drop-deadgorgeous car with swoopy lines and lowstance. £102,615 will secure this beauty,although you will need to move quickly.Maserati will import only around 30right hand drive models into the uKand they’ve arrived.you can exploit the extremes in this car.if you enjoy classic grand touring,heading off to st.Tropez, then theGranCabrio will be ideal, althoughyou will need to pack only theessentials because the boot is a shadesmall. Most of the space is taken up bythe electronic roof and pop-up antirollbars. probably best to buy thebikini and speedo trunks when youget there!if you want to hurtle around like alunatic, this Maserati will tickle yourtaste buds. e V8 4.7 litre engine hasthe sort of power that delivers 0-60 ina shade over 5.0 seconds; top speed is177mph. e accompanying row fromthe exhaust is also a pure delight.economy won’t be your concern but inthis politically correct world i’ll tellyou that you can average just under20mpg. All of the power goes throughan automatic gearbox although youcan also use paddles behind thesteering wheel to change gear.e gearbox is actually one of the bestaround. it automatically blips thethrottle for you when changing downand, the best bet, it features a launchcontrol system. in a nutshell, what youdo is put your left foot on the brakepedal, press the throttle until the revsreach about 2500rpm and then,simultaneously, lift your left foot offthe brake and floor the throttle. ecar shoots away from the lights like ascalded cat.row in 20 inch black alloy wheels,deep side skirts, black front grille,exhaust pipes that resemble stormdrains, plus a deep red body colourand, hey presto, you have a car thatlooks like a million dollars and willcertainly make a huge impressionupon any garden party. e onlychoice of colour comes with theinterior. you can have ivory or greymaterial and a mix of 13 differentstitching colours. Go for ivory; it looksthe business.Maserati cars are a rare sight on ourroads. ey have competition from thelikes of Aston Martin, porsche, Jaguaretc, but they represent something verydifferent. ey aren’t the obviouschoice but they are certainly adiscerning choice.by Graham Courtneywww.wynyardhall.co.uk33
