Just a curious question on how the sun effects growth
Hi, I had been away for 3 months and when I returned on 28th May noticed that my acer trees were flowering but very small leaves and the roses were barely showing anything but the large green buds. I was told the weather up to now had been wet and no sunny days but then we have had nothing but sunny days and they have all came alive with big colourful leaves on the acres and beautiful red roses. Does the sun really work so quick on these plants or was it purely timing of year ? Forgot to mention as soon as I was home I started watering every couple of days. Intrigued to hear your views, thanks..
We've had a lot of cold and dry weather, then we've had a lot of cold and wet weather, then we had more cold and dry weather and finally a week or so ago we've got some warm weather and some rain - plants are making the most of it - they have got a lot of catching up to do to get their job done before autumn
