This winter has been very mild and the wettest on record. Our lavenders haven’t been very impressed at all! Unfortunately, as you’ve probably discovered, there isn’t a lot you can do about rain!
However, on a positive note, the clocks have sprung forward and the temperature has risen and it feels like summer is very nearly here already – thank goodness!
At the minute we have been cleaning out our winter pots and hanging baskets ready for fresh summer bedding. It’s early April and i’m not quite ready to plant my summer bedding just yet, call me a pessimist, but i think there is still a chance of an early morning frost. So i tend to delay my summer bedding until May. It’s always well worth the wait!
