After the Heavy Rain.
I was very aware when I planted up the stream bank that the plants needed to get their roots down before there was heavy rain, as our stream level rises rapidly due to the water coming down from the hills. I tried to help them by weighting down the plants nearest to the water. I even attached a heavy stone to the pot to help the ‘Skunk Cabbage’ stay put!
I had my fingers crossed on Sunday and Monday when we had torrential rain in this area! But I am very glad to tell you that all is well My Flag Iris has its feet in the water but it has not disappeared down stream on its way to visit Grenville at Bristol!
And everything else has stayed put too. Now I just have to hope that the water level goes down far enough before the next rain band arrives!
Keep your fingers crossed for me and my new plants, won’t you! I have just heard the forecast – it’s NOT good! OOOOOH dear.
