Wet weather effects
Another effect of the incessant rain is what is happening to plants that would rather have dry conditions. Yesterday in a dryish period, I dug up some more centauras which have spread too far and lost a baby Perovskia which was tangled up in it. Off I went to our local Nursery, (where they grow most plants themselves), to replace it. I came home without one, though, because the leaves of all the potted Perovskias were a nasty shade of yellow, rather than silver/grey! I don’t know how to help my dry-loving plants. I expect I shall lose some e.g. lavenders and Caryopteris (which are certainly looking yellowish) if we don’t get sunshine soon. Anybody else having similar problems?
