    Not much this week as too hot. Fascinated by my sweet corn plants - I love how the male flower tassel forms and the pollen falls on the female silk - surely another bit of magic from nature! 
    My garden and I live in South Wales.

    Although not quite as hot as yesterday, the air is still quite muggy, so my gardening day started by watering the pots and baskets. Also deadheaded the salvias and dahlias and picked the sweet peas.
    Propped up some heleniums that were flattened by last night's rain, and made a note of jobs to do when it gets cooler at the end of the week.

    Cut back and fed astrantias, geraniums and spirea.  Sowed some viola seeds and fed buxus. VV Hot today so sitting inside by fan inbetween gardening jobs.  Tomorrow is suppost to be even hotter.  We had tremendous storm last night so everything got a good watering.

    Too hot to do much confined to watering/ dead heading in garden Watering/ picking crops on Allotment.

  • A walk on the beach with a paddle was the order of the day this morning, some desperate watering early morning and harvesting of crops. Topped up some of the bird feeders although birds are eating from the field grass seed which is good and perhaps more activity for us in the garden this evening - bare essentials though.

    Yesterday I was at the grand opening of a play area I / my company designed. I was roped into some children's activities, namely helping them plant up a border which had been left bare for them to plant up.

    @GWRS, it seems to be a problem for quite a few people.  Myself and others have contacted @Daniel Haynes and the GW Team a couple of days ago.
