Evening all. I haven't caught up yet. We are back from our hols in Suffolk and Eastbourne. The garden is parched and several plants in my pots and troughs have died. Most of the pots and half the veggie garden are dry as a bone. Hard to water as he water runs straight through the dry compost. Met by smiling house sitter who said he'd watered everything, killed nothing and all was great. He hadn't even put the chlorine in the pool as asked and water is starting to go green. Don't think he has a clue, bet he didn't even read my instructions. He didn't pick the runner beans, courgettes and cucumbers either, or the sweet peas. He said he would.
Sorry for the rant.
Wish we lived in Suffolk, it was so beautiful!
If Beth Chatto had a dry garden here and didn't water it at all it would be dead! I love my garden, I probably made it so I would have a little piece of England in France.
