A Change In The Weather

Exactly what has happened to the weather? Finally the heat and humidity of July has been broken - but by far far cooler temperatures than we'd like and similalry the high winds! It's easy to say gardeners are never happy with the weather, sometimes that unhappiness is more than justified!

Despite the weather, everything has come on leaps and bounds outside. The sweetcorn is making height and forming cobs, the second planting of climbing peas are growing away nicely and starting to flower and the onions are swelling. Even the pumpkins and squashes have romped away - and not only are we swamped with courgettes and summer squashes now, but we can also see some sizeable fruits forming for the autumn. Under glass and in the polytunnel the cucumbers are beating us into submission whilst finally the tomatoes are ripening as well. 

Production wise, August is when we start to get a little bit busier again - as we produce small batches of vegetable plants for later plantings, and start turning our attention to new perennials for next year.

At home, whether on the veg garden or the ornamental garden, you should also be reaping your earlier efforts; maybe not the best year for everything, but also not the total disaster it could have been!

And being the eternal optimist that any gardener is, now is the time to start getting in those young veg to give us fresh harvest into the autumn and winter ahead. Young ornamentals planted now will establish before the onset of the cold weather to give an astonishing display next year - and every year thereafter, unlike annual bedding.

With the continued unsettled weather pattern now is also the perfect time for planting pot grown tree fruit and soft fruit - it will establish faster now than later in the year, and that early planting will reward you with heavier crops next year.
