DATE ADJUSTMENT COMPLETE
CONGRATULATIONS!

All the dates in this site have been adjusted for the area you live in, Rickmansworth.

If you return immediately to a previously viewed page you may well need to refresh your browser for the change to take effect on that page.

We use five date zones for gardeners, your town is in zone 3. As an example of how the date changing works, test it out on the phrase below which corresponds to your current selection:

Start chitting seed potatoes during the third week of February in the Rickmansworth area.

Now examine the towns below, each of which is in a different zone, and you will see that the date for chitting potatoes is different dependent on which zone the town is in.

St Austell - zone 1 - the third week of January

Bude - zone 2 - the first week of February

Worcester - zone 3 - the third week of February

Manchester - zone 4 - the first week of March

Alston - zone 5 - the second week of March
