Through the Garden Gate June 2017
I love the month of June in the garden. There is such an abundance of flowers
There is an abundance of flowers and the vegetable garden is starting to produce a fantastic harvest. The first courgette flower has just appeared and we have had our first cherry tomatoes, we have also been enjoying broad beans, radishes, salad crops, strawberries, raspberries and gooseberries. Fresh produce from the garden always seems to tastes so much better than anything you can buy!
This is the third June in our new garden and some of the cuttings we bought from our previous garden are looking so established now!
We have had to buy some our old favourites too, such as the astrantia and the mallow.
|Our garden here contains many more colourful plants.
It has been so dry here for most of the month, the water barrels ran out of water again. The last few days of the month have bought heavy rain, although the water barrels are now full it also resulted in a leak in the potting shed roof, hopefully this can be repaired before any more heavy rain!
June is always the best month for roses too, their scent and beautiful blooms have bought us so much pleasure.
What is your favourite plant or disaster this month in the garden?
