The winds have had me on tenter hooks for the past week. I feel like a deprived gardener and spend far too much time lingering at every window looking at the garden taking a fierce battering.

The casualties in my garden have been tender young clematis and I have been out on clematis watch as much as temperatures and windforce have allowed, tying in where I can and picking up the broken stems of what would have been my early flowers.

Still on the bright side this may encourage new growth. It's going to be a lovely day on Saturday so I can make sure any more fragile growth can be tied in before the winds return Sunday and Monday. It's an ongoing waiting game this gardening thing isn't it!!

I know this sound silly but what do you do with crocus and hyacinth bulbs now they have finished flowering. Thank you
