Since Open Gardens, we've had heavy rain and high winds every day!! Not the sort of weather you need the pond pump to fail! Chris Genever was nearby and 10 minutes later had disconnected and removed the offending pump! A new one was ordered and so today Chris Pugh placed the replacement pump in position and reconnected the water pipes. We now await further expertise to return it to full service. The garden just doesn't seem the same without the sounds of trickling water!
It seemed a tad weird to be doing the usual Saturday seasonal garden work but without the pressure of open gardens. Same jobs, same priorities just no pressure! Chris gave the hedges a light trim, strimmed and edged. I planted out some Nemesia, a couple of Phlox, Scabious, Sweet William and potted on a load of rooted Dianthus cuttings.
A small group of garden visitors are expected on Tuesday so lets hope the weather picks up for them!
