I am still learning the new 13 x 13 grid, and I have transposed the letters badly in 4 down. The clue was “scour bush”, and the solution “scrub” because of its double meaning (although I am not sure that “scrub” is used to mean a landscape of brushwood and stunted forest growth” (OED) is used in the US.

I will upload the March puzzle in the next few days.
