the weather

I am feeling a bit disheartened, plant lovers! We moved to the house we live in now because of its good sized garden. We moved in the late 1990s and I can honestly say the appalling weather has stopped us gardening again and again! How can we fulfil the desire to garden when the weather is SO poor? How do the rest of you gardeners get your "fix"?

    You must have had some good weather in the past 14 years!

    you can garden in all but pouring rain or when the ground is frozen.

    We have about 4/5 weather threads on the go, perhaps you could pick up some tips from there.

    During the bad weather, I tend to sow seeds and plan my garden and order plants online image Works for me

    you have to be patient and wait for that moment,don't be afraid to out in the cold (not the freezing cold) or rain and potter around.Venture out to the garden center and dream and spend time looking at the plants etc and a cup of coffee.Gardening is always different every year a challenge something to create your self ,faults and all,to learn and not get despondent when things go wrong or the weather seems hopeless.image
