Hello there. Well this wet Summer is certainly affecting things is my garden. The bamboos are loving it. I am having to keep them under control . Purple loosestrife is another moisture lover and looks set to be good. On the other hand my lovely pink potentilla is quite sad with only a few flowers, last year it was covered. the geranium sanguineum picks up when we get a sunny interlude and looks sad in the rain. I am popping out with the torch in the evening to pick off the slugs too as they are having a field day aren't they. I am hoping for some sunshine soon cos I have a lovely pink salvia shrub and it should be covered in bloom. Fingers crossed then. As someone said, ' Gardeners are always optimistic'. I think with all of these weather extremes we are getting ,we are surely due for a good one.????
