The springtime miracle of the fuzzy tree fern | James Wong

The tree fern’s explosive growth rate epitomises renewal. Even dead, they can host new growth

For most people it’s tulips, magnolias, maybe even daffs. For me the most wonderful herald of spring is the tree fern. Yes, a weird favourite, I know. But the expectation – as tightly curled, fuzzy brown “orangutan fists” rapidly unfurl as the days get warmer – never fails to fill me with excitement. The sheer bright green freshness of the new foliage, the explosive growth rate of the croziers, the botanical architecture of it all, perfectly epitomises a season of growth and renewal. Yet, after a truly challenging winter, many might be looking at defoliated stumps of these pricey specimens with crushed spirits. If this is you right now, here’s my guide for what to do next.

First, don’t panic! The Tasmanian tree fern Dicksonia antarctica will suffer browning and loss of fronds during prolonged frosts, but as long as the growing point at the centre of their caudex (furry brown “trunk”) is intact, they may well sprout back to life as if nothing happened, especially on larger specimens. An easy way to test this is to put your hand in the centre of the crown and feel gently for the tightly closed fronds. If these are firm, you will almost certainly be fine. If this is a soggy, swishy mess, the news is less likely to be good. Be patient and wait until at least early June, however, as in my experience they may well surprise you.

For the love of tomatoes | Allan Jenkins

How growing a simple tomato turned into an all-consuming passion

Tomatoes were my gateway drug. It seemed so harmless in the heady days when my gardening meant a few window boxes and some flowerpots on an urban rooftop. I could take them or leave them I told myself, though I liked growing my summer geraniums, lobelia, scented roses, climbing clematis: old school planting like the old couple who brought me up.

Tomatoes, though, were competitive. A few members of our Observer team sowed them. It was 2007. I was editor of this magazine. We showed off pictures of our seedlings as they grew into plants. We talked about the merits of different varieties (I was taken by Black Crimea). We were obsessed.

How to grow Mexican and Bolivian coriander | Alys Fowler

These South American herbs sit on the coriander scale, but are spicier and have a stronger, sharper scent

I am a big fan of coriander in the garden and in the kitchen; I love those earthy, citrussy notes that temper salt and spice so well. In the garden, once left to flower, coriander does a good job of feeding bees and beneficial insects – hoverflies in particular seem to be very fond of it. Then after the flower you get fresh green seed, which is a revelation to cook with or stick in a gin and tonic. The roots are also edible and impart an interesting flavour – I use them a lot in pickling. But the world of coriander flavours does not need to be limited to Coriandrum sativum.

Olivia Laing: ‘There’s no book I love more than Derek Jarman’s Modern Nature’

Wild, honest, riotous, the film-maker’s diary showed me what it meant to be an artist, to be political – and how to plant a garden

There’s no book I love more than Derek Jarman’s Modern Nature. There’s nothing I’ve read as often, or that has shaped me so deeply. I first came to it a year or two after its publication in 1991, certainly before Jarman’s death in 1994. It was my sister Kitty who introduced me to his work. She was 10 or 11 then and I was 12, maybe 13.

Strange kids. My mother was gay, and we lived on an ugly new development in a village near Portsmouth, where all the culs-de-sac were named after the fields they had destroyed. We were happy together, but the world outside felt flimsy, inhospitable, permanently grey. I hated my girls’ school, with its prying teachers. This was the era of section 28 (of the 1988 Local Government Act), which banned local authorities from “promoting” homosexuality and schools from teaching its acceptability “as a pretended family relationship”. Designated by the state as a pretended family, we lived under its malign rule, its imprecation of exposure and imminent disaster.

His capacity to write honestly about sex and death ​​makes much contemporary nature writing seem prissy and anaemic

The deepest source of his happiness was the Hinney Beast, the nickname he bestowed on his companion, Keith Collins

The diary ends in hospital, the opening litanies of plant names replaced by those of the drugs keeping him alive
