Monday 26th Aug.

As this lovely weather continues I am making plans for the Autumn.
Last year I washed the greenhouse but this year I am going to give it a really good clean with some Jeyes fluid, feel sure that all this lovely sunshine will have given the beasties a field day, just to be sure a good scrub will put my mind at rest.
I am under way now with cuttings of the Fuschia etc. so all is well.
The Bay tree/bush has been well trimmed also the red Pyrocantha and Holly so the Autumn work will be easier, especially fitting every thing into the dreaded green bin, last season it was nearly Christmas before we were clear.
The Apples are continuing to drop, some quite large so have started to freeze them.
The Surfina Petunias in a basket by the garage are still terrific, they must have been in flower for 12 weeks, you really cannot ask more of a plant than this. I have decided next season in the triple basket at the end of the garden, to plant up with the same Surfina Petunia, they are dearer than the others but well worth the difference.
