what can I say about the weather - polytunnel blew away in the high winds in May, a small apple tree the only thing that kept it from completely blowing away. 50% of small plants it covered killed by frost week before, and the rest transferred into the conservatory were eaten the next night by slugs. Other plants if not slowed down by cold weather keep thinking they are 'water lillies', my begonias that always give great display of summer colour and would normally be pushing up flower buds now are looking drowned and new bulbs put into pots over a month ago are just starting to push through the soil. The only good thing don't have to worry about plants drying out due to the summer sun.
