Summer has arrived

FB, I think sweet peas appreciate a bit of warmth which was somewhat lacking last year? A summer to forget for all sorts of reasons

The beauty of sweet peas is that you have to cut them or they would pretty soon give up flowering altogether.

V.   Sowley House was a private visit arranged by "Plant Heritage" ( the new name of the NCPPG) and clearly a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet the owner and her garden. I don't think I have ever been in a more tranquil garden. Worth the annual membership fee and then some. Fritham is yellow book in the Forest , near where I live but one I have only driven past before. We raised some funds for the local Hospice this morning, always a most worthy cause.

I can't possibly be first???.. Visited heavenly garden today, Sowley House on the shores of The Solent. Beautiful roses, 18th Century walled garden, lots of unusual things, wild orchids, shoreline. Wonderful welcome and beautiful weather. Drove home  through New Forest wandering through all my most favourite places. New Forest Ice cream treat and home in time to sit and enjoy my own garden. 

Fritham Lodge garden planned for tomorrow

Pruning Roses

Posted: 28/06/2013 at 18:34

You might as well prune your climber now , but leave the standard to late in the year after flowering finishes. If you do any pruning in summer expect to lose some flowers, altho' in the long term scheme of things this is not particularly important. In either case don't wait to spring... do it before winter.

Most feeds are a variation on the same theme, so you can't go very wrong with weak tomato feed when you water, say every other time. Start now.

Mini meadow a mighty mess!

Cowslips and Camassias are for the early summer but mine are over now. Most of the impact at the present is from the ox-eye daisies, which started out as a few small plants and now are seeding around vigourously and could swamp your space. Some orchids would have real impact now.

Talkback: How to harvest sweetcorn

They are much better microwaved for about 3 mins., turned over, mw for 3 more mins. Lot less bother than boiling . Keep flavour and scrunch.
