What a great spell of weather we are enjoying and the coming week will see some dry days, some cloudy and some sunny, with temperatures of about 20C degrees. If we are lucky we might have rain on Thursday afternoon and through to Friday.
With the warm and dry weather still to continue we will be watering our vegetables and any other plants showing signs of distress. Still watering the rhododendrons and camellias once a week to promote flower buds.
Carrying on with deadheading of dahlias and perennials and annuals while there is still plenty of colour in the borders.
The allium bulbs have arrived and are ready to be planted so I will get on with that until the next batch of bulbs comes through the post. I love this time of planting bulbs and to see them growing next year.
The raspberry canes need to be cut down and dug out and the replacements still need to be chosen. The hedge too needs a good cut, but whether that job will be done or not who knows! Our garden always seems to find jobs for us to fulfill. There are dead branches of the mature elm trees to be dealt with as well!
At least there is no pressure of getting these jobs done so we can enjoy the garden and our “indian” summer!
