This weeks weather also looks higgledy piggledy, in other words showers on and off on Monday and Tuesday afternoon. So far Wednesday and Friday seem to be dry with temperatures of about 16 degrees. Which leaves Thursday a wet showery day – a no grass cutting day!!
We have a few little things to do such as sowing hardy annuals eg. foxgloves and wallflowers. We also need to stamp down our compost heap to compact the material which helps it to heat up and speed the degrading of organic matter. We keep feeding the tomatoes and courgettes once a week and the squashes and pumpkins.
The roses need daily dead heading except for the rosa rugosa which will produce good red coloured hips. The flower borders also need dead heading and weeding. The grass won’t stop growing so it will need mowing on a dry day.
We must start to assemble the bug hotel ready for any beastie needing shelter come autumn and winter. I think this list should keep us out of mischief for the next week! And we’ll have time to enjoy the garden as well!!
