Let it rain, let it rain, let it rain…!

Don’t you just hate it when your summer bedding is looking its absolute pristine best… and then it rains, I mean really rains. Your bedding is flattened with the weight of the deluge and hangs limp, lacklustre, sodden and sorry over the sides of your pots.

Well my friends, I’m not having it this year!

I’ve protected my perfect petunias with plastic bags, split down one side and then held above the plants with 30cm bamboo sticks.

Heavy rain and storms are forecast for tomorrow morning. So! Bring it on! I’m ready for your Mr Rainmaker!

Check back tomorrow for the score…
