state of garden after holiday


We have just returned from 10 days away from our garden and it is in a sorry state. Despite being watered (once) by a well meaning relative, it is not very happy. Worst hit was a lace top hydrangea recently purchased, and still in a large pot. Other casualties included nemesia pluglets delivered whilst we were away and tended by a neighbour who is not a gardener. Frank was absolutely gutted, as only men can be!!!! I am trying to be optomistic about it as I find most plants do their best to survive. I suggested talking to them but I don’t think that will work. Still, it has given us a new challenge.!!!!

I'm sure women are able to feel gutted aswell - they are human after all (Well I think they are anyway)
I hope you can get your garden back to normal very soon.

You'd be surprised how 'dead' things can look & then they bounce back! Now you're back I'm sure they feel better. :o)
