Had heavy rain here in Stoke-on-trent this morning after a big thunderstorm last night. I think everything has survived-the sweetcorn is definitely looking happy Marion! Came down in stair-rods, just as I decided to plant some seeds, so it was 'garage gardening'! I planted some Lettuce seeds-a trial pack from DT seeds(I feel a bit like you with your Mr.Fothergill trial Marion!) and some late Carrots, also called Marion. So I just had to let you know! Your pictures are lovely- I hope that you do well with your Bristol In Bloom. Becoming a bit of a seedaholic I think-saw a gardening magazine with free seeds, and before I knew it, I had sent off for another half dozen free packets! That's why I got the free pack of trial seeds. I now have a box full of seeds for next year, and a despairing husband.
