Living in Dordogne where it can get very hot in summer, I give mine a good soaking every other day, until water comes out at the bottom.

Hasn't anyone been to any gardens this year since April?

We went to Waterperry in Oxfordshire before we went to New York. It was looking lovely.

Do you think I'd win a prize for the biggest carrot at the local show?


Anyone done any gardening today?

Posted: 16/06/2015 at 21:34


Done my first bit of gardening since we came home from the New York trip. Have deadheaded 3 climbing roses and done some weeding in the veggie garden.

Before and after.

I have had that problem before, especially in dry weather. Ant powder was the only thing that worked, but usually I don't use insecticides. Case of needs must!
