What is your weather like? (2)

Mainly sunny and breezy for our walk along the South Downs near Newhaven, we got caught in one brief squall but there were some heavy skies just offshore. Not sure if Floss is checking out the weather or the sheep in the other field .

Hi Gardengirl, I planted a Tayberry in the autumn but it will be a while before it bears any worthwhile fruit. 

My Rhubarb crowns are starting to sprout so will pick one to 'force' for early 'crumble'

As people have mentioned definitely bolt it down, the weight of the greenhouse alone won't stop wind lifting it. If it's fitted with roof vents and/or louvres make sure they can be secured shut when wind is forecast or wind will get in and blow out panes.

The sun is just making an appearance here in Kent. Very cold, dull morning but the thermometer is starting to creep up.

Rosemummy that's a shame. On our plot one of the holders runs a gardening business and has prepared plots for people, he's pretty reasonable. Is there anyone who could do this on your plot?
