Wind, wind - and more wind. What we poor gardeners have to suffer by way of the elements, and in june when growth is full on there can be no more destructive element than wind. Our beautiful white opium poppies were the first plants to bite the dust and we'll be carefully nurturing the 2 or 3 which remain for their precious seed. Yet looking around the garden it is surprising just how much has pulled through well. Plants are naturally built to survive. We suffered the same problem last year and made the decision to to fashion our own steel hoops, forming them around the trunk of a birch tree (which has still not recovered from the ordeal) - the problem is, they are still sitting on the fence awaiting positioning and that has to be fitted in with the hedges that need their first cut, areas to be strimmed , unrelenting mowing, masses of plants to be potted to see us through the seasons - oh - and I nearly forgot - eager customers to be served. There's never a dull moment in a nurseryman's life.
