What is the weather like where you are?  It is wet here with heavy downpours.  Does this ruin the plants?  Does rain help the plants to flourish.  I have cornflowers, wild poppies, kalcanchoes and roses.  Please your views?

    The weather is pretty much as the forecast has predicted here. Sunny, showers then rain - heavy and persistent. Many of my plants have been battered by the accompanying winds. Weeds seem to be impervious worse luck. Nearly as bad as last year.

    Me to Ladybird4  I will move there too wait for me.  Sounds good.  Though if rain helps the plants then that is fine as then better for them.  Your plants sound great Verdun.  Mine are ok but needing help some are still in bud.  I hope they come out soon.

    Warm and dry tonight - just looked at forecast and can't see any raindrops for next week either. Garden looks a bit thirsty and pond level dropped quite a bit. My niece will help me do some watering tomorrow - although her little can only holds about 300ml! 

    My garden and I live in South Wales.

    Fed up. No rain here for over two weeks and temps in high 20s low 30s. Everything is scorched and I spend at least an hour watering every night. Lost the rocket crop, beans frazzled and i  think rats have had a go at the beetroot. Feeling glum.

    This is the third year on the trot this has happened. Drastic plans now in place to alter the way we garden - fewer veg and mediterranean plants.  Rain dance anyone?

    Now had 7 whole days without rainimage.  Having to water pot plants! Rest of the garden is fine as the soil was sodden with all the heavy rain in the previous 2 weeks so everything growing very fast.

    Will gladly send you some rain there.  I have too much.  Though today has been dry and sunny.  Plants a bit battered through all the water they are just holding their own.  We went for a walk and got a watered husband!!   Sorry about you having to water the grass that sounds like an ordeal there.  My friend has broken her arm and her grass has grown really high in the sky!!.
