On my radar: Richard Sennett’s cultural highlights

The American sociologist on climate-change art, Janáček’s quartets and having a black thumb

His work focuses on ethnography, urban design and social theory and he teaches at the LSE and New York University. His many books include The Fall of Public Man (1977), Flesh and Stone (1994) and The Corrosion of Character (1998) and he has written three novels. Sennett’s latest book, Building and Dwelling, has just been published by Allen Lane.

Flowers with meaning | Allan Jenkins

We all know everyone has a significant song in their life, but a special flower can be rich with emotion, too

It is easier with a song than a flower; a lyric or tune picked from the soundtrack of your life (I’ve Been Loving You Too Long: Otis Redding, is mine or, more correctly, ours). Favoured flowers, though, are quieter, with less information to draw on. It is my wife’s birthday this week and I will buy her lily of the valley: a bunch of flowering bulbs to be enjoyed, then replanted by a northern sea.

I am unsure how it came about. It is an unlikely choice, though they were there in her childhood (often important), same as nasturtiums for me. Beloved by her beloved grandmother (flowers can leap a generation: my dad despised dahlias, I adore them). Fragrance is also important, at least for us, as is timing. There has to be a link and they have to be available.

Vegetables that keep on giving, year after year | James Wong

Perennial crops, like artichokes, asparagus and rhubarb, can produce continual harvests from a single planting for decades at a time

Finally! The first signs of spring are on the horizon. I’ll have to wait a while before I can sow batch after batch of the annual crops, like lettuce, carrots and beans, but there is one group that can be planted now that will give greater harvests for just a fraction of the work. Weirdly, they also tend to be more expensive and harder to track down in the shops: a pretty sweet deal when it comes to the effort/reward ratio, really.

These are the perennial crops, like artichokes, asparagus and even rhubarb, that from a single planting can produce continual harvests for decades at a time. They won’t require the annual ritual of digging, sowing and transplanting each spring, not to mention the drudgery of digging them up and composting each autumn. If you haven’t already dedicated a corner of your patch to these horticultural superstars, now is a perfect time to get planting. If you have, here are three less well-known, but equally tasty, perennial crops.

Ready, get set, plant: a gardener’s year starts here

Hardy annuals to sow, bulbs to buy, pots to pick, snowdrops to split… now is the time to get plans in gear

Gardeners, rejoice! We’re on the brink of spring. And although it is still officially winter in the UK for another week or so at least – depending on whether you talk to a meteorologist or an astronomer, spring begins on 1 March or 20 March, the vernal equinox – now is the perfect time to get plans in gear for the horticultural year.

Hardy annual flowers are the advance party of the seed-sowing world, so think of these first (just beware occasionally freezing or waterlogged soil). Get your seed order in now, and most hardy annuals can be sown direct into the soil in a month’s time, provided the soil has warmed up enough that you can imagine performing the old farmer’s trick of comfortably sitting your bare buttocks on it.

How to grow parsley | Alys Fowler

Our gardening expert on how to get the best crop of this popular herb

That clean, green, mineral-like flavour of flat-leaf parsley in winter, particularly in salads, is one of the ways I hold dear to getting through the darker months. It’s rich in iron, vitamin A and C, several B complexes, packed with flavonoids and has a long history of aiding digestion.

For such a health-giving herb, parsley has long been marred by strange superstitions and devilish ways. Apparently, one of the reasons it is notoriously slow to germinate (and it can take over a month) is because the seed has to visit the devil several times first, often forgetting to come back from the underworld. In reality, this is just the vagaries of being in the Apiaceae family: it is notorious for having seed with underdeveloped embryos, which results in patchy germination.
