David, I'm a bit behind with your SP thread, as I wasn't getting notifications I've lost track and my Sweet Peas are now planted out on their trellis. Sorry I'll go and look for it.
PP that clemmie is Crystal Fountain. I only planted it last year, bought it in England. Wanted it for ages but couldn't find it in France. Glad you like them. I have more, but they aren't out yet.
GD, I am the main gardener, OH is the under gardener, he mows the lawns and does DIY. It does get hot in July and August, in the 30s, but there are thunderstorms and I do water. But I water the pots much more often than the garden. We have underground rivers in this area as there is limestone rock and caves. Last year there was a general Dordogne hosepipe ban but my local water board said there was plenty just here. The Maire said I could always water my vegetables.
We've just had a very wet winter and a wet spring.
