This Summer has been the warmest and driest that i can remember! We have had so little rain and the sun has been shining almost everyday. For many gardens this would be worrying, but luckily for us, our trees and plants are now so mature that their roots run deep and as we are located at the bottom of the valley we still have some water underground to keep the garden looking its best.
Summer is always a lovely time of year when the warm temperatures give the plants a chance to grow in excess and everything in the garden has a fresh aesthetic as the foliage is expanding and stretching into the available spaces.
This year has been exceptionally warm and sunny and this has promoted huge amounts of growth from many of the species in the garden. Luckily we have some huge trees that shade areas of the garden from the fiercest sunlight so our more delicate plants, such as the Japanese maples, have been protected from such an abundance of sun.
