Finally the bad weather seems to have broken and the sun is shining for at least most of the day. I know that this time of year is all about Chelsea, but for those of us who live too far away to visit here’s a podcast which I thought painted an interesting picture of the displays and what they represented to the horticultural community.
I’m having a slight problem with my cucumbers and aubergines. It’s my first time growing them, and I’m not sure what they expect of me or what I should expect of them in a moist climate and unheated plastic greenhouse. I’ve potted them on but any advice would be greatly appreciated!
The tiny plastic greenhouse has been tied down to ensure that it doesn’t blow down in the wind again.
The mostly fine weather has given the summer flowers the impetus to blossom. So this week, I’m just going to soak up the sunshine and enjoy rambling leisurely about the potager after a fairly dismal winter and spring!
