What a terrible June we all had the weather was rubbish. The sad thing is I can not say the start of July was any better. August arrived and at last it's nice and sunny, with an odd wet day.After three week's the plants below looked fantastic, then the rain moved in. Just to let you all know I have not taken any of the green tub, as at the moment the plants as gone to ruin, from Saturdays flood. But I will keep you all posted on how they all get on, including the green box!
Since then the green tub as perked up. Some of the Lavateria and Cosmos that my uncle grew got ate by you guessed it a snail/slug. But the one I have saved have done okay, not as tall as they should be. I have also sowed some wildflower mix, in between the gap's in the green box.
I'll get a picture of the green tub tomorrow!
The Abies Nordmanniana have grown since the last time I wrote about him. I have also kept him in the pot I bought him in too! Even thou it as been hammering it down with rain here. I have been going out and watering him - as I know his branch's save's the water getting down to the roots. Plus I do not want him to dry out either!
My rhododendron that flowered on the 18th of December (2011). Finished flowering again the second week in July. By the end of July there was buds on it again.
On the 20th of this month the rhododendron is re-flowering again!
While the other one I have that is at the top end of the garden, finished flowering at the end of last month.
Please find picture below!
On the plus side of all this rain we have had, my hydrangea as been loving it.
