At last the Ammi Majus has turned up. I can weed around the seedlings and all will be well with the world. The weeds in the garden have been out competing the flower seedlings and I was beginning to wish I had grown them in pots.
The rains still haven’t come and it doesn’t look like we’re going to get the heavy rain that had been predicted…grrrrrrr. Having to water…(By watering can) is very time consuming and adds a couple of hours on to already long days. First there’s the gardening for clients in order to pay the bills…then there’s the Higgledy Garden to tend…its all very FULL ON!!!! …and the long weekend to Cornwall has had to be cancelled because of…wait for it…the hot weather…the world has been turned on its head,

The lack of rain is definitely becoming a problem. The water butts ran dry weeks ago so now we’re using the hose, but that only reaches so far. For all of the raised beds watering cans are required; my arms will be dragging along the ground by Autumn if things carry on this way!

I only have three ammi majus plants – loads of them self-sowed last autumn and I stupidly assumed they were growing away happily but when I went to look for them, I realised only three had got through the winter. Masses of ammi visnaga, though, which I’m less keen on. Still, they’ll have to do. Sorry to hear your Cornwall trip’s off. We are forecast heavy rain this weekend, but I never believe these forecasts. Never thought I’d be so anxious for a downpour! x
