Good morning all. Scorchio here already. 27.5C at 9am. I'm on my second coffee and then out and at the weeds in the silk tree bed. Bit of a lie in cos I was out late hunting Minstrel and Rasta who were busy at 1am in the potager. Found them by torchlight which meant I didn't see the nettles as I did the tour of the ruin in flip flops. Good for my arthritis!
The RHS says cleome seeds need stratification for 2 weeks and then 18 to 24C to germinate. I expect they've had that Dove.
No bats spotted here yet tho we do have swallows/house martins swooping about and what I would have thought were ideal roosting sites in teh ruin and barn so I must look harder.
