Letters from the garden
June marvellous June, hot hot hot! It may not be by the time you read this but I have to say it’s great.
Don’t forget the watering, if you have planted something it will need attention, and with the dry windy weather it makes the borders lose water quicker, if you can mulch do it, if not get the sprinkler out while you are watching Wimbledon, and don’t forget the Pimms!
Have you got a favourite plant at the moment, I’m loving the dark maroon centaurea ‘jordy’ it’s stunning, if there is one thing I can advise plant lovers, if it’s only one plant a year try something different you’ll love it.
We hope you enjoy Wimbledon and at last the start of summer, hope to see you all in your gardens very soon.
