In The Pouring Rain The Planting Out Begins
For meteorologists, scientists and gardeners, summer officially starts on the 1st June. With that in mind, and this date being less than a week away, the planting out of the borders, for their summer display, began this morning. (Not sure if Mother Nature is aware that summer should be starting in less than a week). In the pouring rain, the first of the borders, the long border at the bottom of the quad,was planted up. Plants grown from cuttings taken last September and annuals from seeds sown in February are all used, and, despite the rain, are watered in, a strange sight, a gardener using a hose pipe to water plants in the pouring rain.
