Gardens in flower

Our roses are magnificent this year, loaded with blooms

However our clematis, and we have several are not doing well, scarcely any flowers

Anyone else noticed the same pattern in their garden ?

Not really, Sandra. Our roses (two!) are rather poor. It has been so dry, here, in East Anglia that I am surprised anything has survived to be honest.
We planted a Weeping Willow to replace the one that was a casualty of the diggers and it has been a worry to keep it watered. It is right beside the pond but is too new to have deep roots yet.

The cornus florida have very few blooms (brackts) this year, loaded last year with fuits exactly like strawberries. The gooseberries have been a failure, but a prolific crop of red and black currents, rubarb was so so. First sowing of runner beans rooted in the ground, but the courgettes are going bonkers in this hot humid weather. Roes have been so so although the dog ones in the hedgerows have never been better. Every year is different thank goodness. What suits one genus doesn't suit another. I suppose it's the same with people,

Our gooseberries have no fruit although looking very healthy

I think that last year they had some infestation

Our cucumbers have wilted and died

Raspberries and strawberries seem to have plenty although not yet ripe

Tomatoes are just beginning to fruit

Apple trees loaded, cherries are good but the birds always get there first, not ripe yet but I already see the birds eying them up, not a single plum so far the year

Fig tree is well well loaded in the greenhouse, as is the vine

Apart from the trees our veg are grown in pots

As are all our fushisas, hostas and geraniums

Every year we say we must cut back as they are heavy to move into the greenhouse in winter and out in spring as we get older

If anything we just seem to get more

I could start a small garden centre with miniature hostas, loads of varieties and this year we really need to split both them and the large hostas

It will be like the Sorcerers Apprentice when we start

East Anglia had the driest May on record and that is saying something for this region. Then we get to June and it rains. Didn't last long though. A local farmer told us that all the crops were really stressed before the rain so hope it helped him out.
