They will need watering early in the morning and again at dusk.  Even our established trees are wilting now, so out with the hose!

Haven't needed to water very often as we have had rain at various times over the last few days.

Same here but I don't think that the water is going far.  Ground has been too hard.  Frogs are loving it  ;D

Finally can stop watering - at least the flower and veg garden. Only the pots and tubs, outside toms and greenhouse to do now - and not every day thank goodness. Ground is lovely and wet :)

Any pots with flowers, i.e. lobelia, hanging over are dry  :-\ so out with the hose.  Saving the stored water for the heathers, camellia which means lugging round buckets but it's better than the gym  ::)

The duck weed grows fast  >:(  :o

Picked the Discovery and plums today  :).  Another apple tree is almost ready.  Cut back raspberry canes and shrubs.  Busy, busy, busy  ;)

Our apples are still very small, plums rock hard and raspberries just starting. Fed up of courgettes, we have so many.

Let them grow into marrows? which can be stuffed with a pre-cooked mince mixture.

I've just picked another 6 courgettes. 3 small enough to eat.  I will use the other three in marrow recipes.

There is quite a bit in the gardening and national press about brought in diseases, the latest tree to be affected is our Oak.  How many of you check the bio-security of the centres that you visit and buy from?  I need to up my awareness otherwise many of our native plants will die due to bugs, moulds etc..  :'(

I think it should begin at Chelsea Flower Show and the Gardeners' World Live Show!  No plant swapping!!

Got out into the garden yesterday and gave it
a real good clean up, got all the fallen leaves up, cut back plants,
and threw old stuff away...... :o
Iím really pleased with it, looks lovely n clean now.....
Except for the wooden table, which looks like itís falling to bits...lol  :'(
Might have to buy another one next spring, ready for the summer....
Itís all in the bin waiting for the council to empty, which hopefully, will be this week sometime. 
I love it when a plan comes together........lol  ;D ;D
