July 2018

The middle of July and the weather is still as hot, if not hotter than it was throughout May and June.  Whilst it has been lovely having a nice long hot summer for a change it has also proved to be a bit of a challenge as the prolonged hot spell has made our crops of flowers for the wedding flower far too early.  We did do three plantings at three week intervals so not all is lost yet!
