25 May

One Extreme To The Other

Well after almost daily frosts until a fortnight ago we have had shade temps of up to 29deg here for the last week.

My Gardening Direct deliveries arriving during the hot weather have fared well, arriving looking remarkably fresh. Now all potted on or planted out.

Thumbergias all doubled in size overnight and the courgettes have grown like triffids. After a slow  start in the cold the new roses are full of tender new shoots – I can’t wait to see the new blooms. Runner beans are 50cm high now and the peas are going into the ground today – surrounded by netting until established to stop the ever-ready pigeons.

Porous hose turned on yesterday in the veg plot as it’s too dry and to many plants to do by hand now.
