August 2012

30 August 2012

Has been a mixed month weather wise, the garden has been looking lovely and there has not been too much weeding to be done, I have just been wandering round the garden, pulling out an odd weed here and there, snipping off a the dead heads as flowers fade.

Unfortunately many of the bedding geraniums seem to have succumbed to rust, we have sprayed them and picked off the affected leaves, but I fear that I will not be able to find many healthy shoots for cuttings or be able to overwinter as many plants as usual.

Otherwise the garden this month has been there to enjoy, to sit back with feet up, a cup of tea and a good book on a sunny afternoon.
