Anyway, back to the garden. I know I have said it before, but really I am so glad that I used water retaining granules and slow release fertilizer. With the amount of pots I have and working full time, it would be very difficult and tiring to keep on top of the watering with the heat we have been having. Look at these pots, I am so pleased with them.
Not so sure about the Sweet Peas, They all seem to be blue tones, and whilst I love the deep blue painted effect I had wanted a variety of colours. Still they smell divine and look lovely as well.
The Pelargoniums just keep on giving from mid may until the first frosts. I love them, I take cuttings every August and overwinter them.
Photo of the weekend. The pots are really coming into their own now, and all I need to do whilst we are having this glorious weather is keep them watered, deadheaded every day and a little tomato/rose food once a week to supplement the slow release fertilizer I added at planting.
Addendum: This post was written before the spectacular electrical storm and torrential rain we had in South East Britain Last Night. Although, It is still muggy and warm.
