Poor Garden

This hot weather and long time lack of good rain, is putting paid to the flowers in my garden. Having lost half my peonies over winter, the two that survived threw out a couple of sad looking flowers. They vaguely opened before drooping and dying.

The roses have flowered well but are now looking sad and dejected even with watering and feeding. Other things are constantly drooping, despite a thorough drenching. It is probably worth cutting them down and letting them start again when the weather improves:
On a bright note though, I am keeping up with my washing!

  1. I noticed a couple of my onions have bolted because of the hot dry weather. I'm going to dig some up and see how they're doing.

    1. Best to use the bolted one as they develop a hard core.

  2. I read recently that if your roses are early bloomers, it's good to prune them at this time of year and encourages another show later on. Mine are only just starting to flower. We've been watering like crazy, especially our allotment but we've had some plants bolt.

    1. I have cut them back as each one finishes. They are already blooming again, might even get three lots of flowers.
