Up first is a personal favourite, leeks. February is the perfect time to be harvesting leeks in the UK. Use a garden fork and lift them gently out of the soil. Tesco Real Food has a fantastic recipe for leek and chilli pancakes. Recipe here.
This brilliant bright purple 24" scatter cushion contrasts against any green you have in your garden, it will look especially good next to a newly mown lawn! Click on the image for more information.

An unusual sight which will be sure to raise some eyebrows: kale pancakes! These green pancakes are gluten free and delicious. Kale is usually still about in gardens throughout February for harvest. The kale is very nutritious and these pancakes make the perfect base for stronger flavours like chorizo or a spicy salsa. Check out the recipe from Tin and Thyme here:
Large grey cushions make a fantastic base to put behind any other patterned or brightly coloured cushions in the garden. The more cushions - the more comfy! Click on the image for more information.
