Long summer days, high temperatures and maximum sunlight are the hallmarks of a good summer (lets hope for a little rain though!). The Summer of 2022 is eagerly awaited by all the keen gardens up and down the UK as herbaceous borders, roses, veg gardens and meadows are awash with new plantings, flower and a general sense of abundance that only Summer can bring. Whereas Spring is a steady ramping of growth the Summer is a time for 'peak plant' followed by the mellow and relaxed waning into Autumn - so slap on that sun scream, stick on your favourite summer hat and get out and enjoy all the hard work you've undertaken in your garden!
The Summer is in fall swing, as the summer solstice has been and gone and warm (even hot!), long days are ahead. Head Gardeners Saul and Lucy realise they haven't seen each other for quite some time, let alone chatted about tales from their respective gardens! So in this episode let the garden chit-chat begin as they Lucy brings stories of bindweed success, bio-fumigant experimentation and meadows that are both Poppy-less but none the less beautiful.
