May and June were the wettest and coolest months in decades, and yet we still have a hosepipe ban enforced. Daft? You betcha. Lucky? Yes, because with all this rain we’ve not needed to give any plants a drink of water, so using the hose is immaterial. Here are a few photos from the garden taken during June. The (undercover) grapevine that’s tied into the roof-ridge of the greenhouse is happily setting clusters of grapes, so a good crop is expected from them this autumn. The outdoor vines are less happy with the cool temperatures.
