Both my water butts have been empty for 2-3 weeks and the clay soil is very dry and cracked.

I've never had the need for a water butt here, rain never usually too far away, this year though is an exception :)

Both mine are empty too..and I have given the pots a miss tonight,as its been cloudy and grey,and they have been moved into a shadier area,ready for going away at the weekend..a kind neighbour is going to water them for me :o).I doubt if they would still be alive when we got back,..hotting up again apparently ..back to the watering tomorrow ..

I am eeking out the stored rain-water, looks likely that the ericaceous plants in pots are going to need it for a fair while yet. It is such a long time since we last had temperatures in the 20s and more than a few days of sun at one time that it seems unreal .... could this be a proper summer !!!!
