This summer will go down as the worse of a long series of poor summers. I actually can’t remember the last hot summer we have had in the UK. The vegetables were a disaster, ditto sweet peas, and many other plants languished. I also never got all the borders planted up and irises etc. divided and replanted.
A lot of important jobs didn’t get done: annual insecticide drenches, potting of larger plants and re-insulating of two of the greenhouses – not too late for the last named but I fear I will regret the absence of insecticide. Note to myself: do better next year!!!
I have taken a few photographs which I will post over the coming days. Here are some greenhouse pictures taken at the beginning of October before I crammed in all the plants summering outside. I will post further photos tomorrow.
