Did you buy an extra water butt or irrigation system expecting a hot summer? Have you planted a Mediterranean garden of hot dry-condition loving flowers? Well this summer in England we have had ‘Global Watering’ not global warming.

The good news is the Apples and Runner Beans are producing great crops at the moment.
