My Garden





Another Day Well Spent In The Garden, Front Lawn Raked And Cut 3 Times Ready For Sharp Sand And Lawn Feed, Looks A Bit Bare At The Moment But Will Ecentually Show Some Colour.

Back Garden. 3 Trips To The Tip, Ivy Gradually Dying Off, Ready To Paint Trellis Tomorrow (Weather Permitting).

Have Just Ordered Quite A Few Plants Ready For Sept.

All I can say is - it must be better weather over in the east of the country! It's been raining here today, I got damp walking Henry this morning, and when I poked my head out just now - it rained on me! So no gardening today. Got a lot done yesterday, though! You worked hard today and there's still time to do more, Delbert! Why are you typing and not dead-heading? LOL.

I bet you feel really pleased now, Delbert. What an acvhievement!

I'm southeast-ish and it has been raining here since about 11am. Just been out on slug patrol - 74 tonight GRRRRR

It seems to me that the summer weather here in the UK has been largely an east/west divide - until now that is! It apparently poured non-stop during our week in balmy London and, since our return home, we've only had yesterday dry. My waterers-in-waiting got off lightly, in my opinion! Still, no hours of watering for me nightly now! Dead-heading, Delbert, is the removal of spent flowerheads as soon as they appear, to encourage further flowering. It also applies to many fruit and veggies - pick often to allow more to develop. Best Wishes!

Glad to hear you've been able to get plenty of work done. I've had a delivery of topsoil 2 weeks ago and it's still waiting to be brought in. We've had nothing but rain every day, and it's still raining now.

I also planned a day in my garden yesterday, only to be ruined by the rain here in Yorkshire.
