Very hot in Bristol,even with a breeze.can not do any gardening today have to wait untill the evening .
just eaten our frist broad beans,raseberries,lots of gooseberries,lettice,radish,pototoes,strawberries a few,apples and plums forming,runner beans just about ready,currants picked not alot,and waiting for Quinces.
makes you wonder what kind of plant theif makes a gardener.I know my mother often had plants stolen from her garden and after much ado it was found to be the local postman selling the at a car boot sell.
no,you will have to buy or take a cutting from another such plant.Buddliea comes in many lovely colours and is easy to grow and propogate.
i have cosmos flowers that are slow at opening i think its the heat .They do eventual open
water it every day with plenty of water. I had a clematis that I dug up and thought I would lose but i put it in a bucket of water (with out water )and it came back to life and I still have it.plenty of water and depth of planting with shade for the feet and sun for the top.
no! too much gravel around .cut back the buddlia shrubs (or re-move)this will make a sense of space or plant just shrubs that are low lying but not gravel .
it may need another pear tree to help pollination ,I gather it is not a self -pollinating tree,if there are no others in the gardens or maybe it needs pruning.
In this hot weather all the trees are shedding their leaves in response to the drought conditions.
either herb robert or willow herb.Herb Robert has a distintive smell when pulled from the ground and is common in my garden growing everywhere.Willow herb is a tougher and taller plant with lovely little flowers and has just seeded it self in my garden,its not going to stay either.
