Six garden pleasures to enjoy and drought problems to avoid this spring and summer
From May through to at least September we can bask in the hope and even the reality that the garden is ready to be enjoyed. The suggestion of a drought feels like a welcome change after the chilly start to the spring! Evenings, weekends and daytime too. This is the time of year that anything seems possible. Dining outdoors;
swinging in a hammock; entertaining friends; barbecues;
garden games; and relaxing. Take some time out to sit in the sun when it appears, then save your gardening tasks for the cloudier times when youll be glad of the shade.
