Summers finally here.

At last flowering plants can get some sun and get on with producing flowers, during dry spells please don't forget to water hanging baskets and pots daily.

All bedding plants should be outdoors now after hardening off. Keeping the greenhouse cool is a bit of a nightmare when it's as hot as this, i use plastic mesh that you can buy specially for the job off ebay or your local garden centre.

On June 12-16 the NEC in Birmingham will play host to BBC Gardeners' World Live. As well as show gardens there will be thousands of plants and flowers on display, expert advice and shopping opportunities. Visit their website for more details. I will be there on the Sunday this year.
