Where is all this rain we have been promised. I'm sure the rest of you have had enough but our soil is now bone dry down to around 12" (30cm) and all fruit is dropping off as the trees just cannot cope. We have hardly had any good rain for weeks now, just the odd shower then it stops.
I can't keep watering as we are on a meter and the butts are getting more and more empty:(
On a slightly different note, I think I mentioned a while ago that we are both finding it slightly more difficult to keep on top of the garden, particularly this year with it needing constant attention, weeding, cutting back, watering etc. With that in mind, we have begun to close down small areas.
We have two fruit arches in the back garden, each with many flowers growing under the trees. Here is an example which still has to be finished:
Down the left hand side where there are more fruit trees, again, nearly all plants have been removed:
Weather permitting, have a good weekend folks.
