Its bright here, with the sun burning through high cloud.
You wouldn't know we're just on the dry side of River Elwy's devastating floods of the last couple of days.
St Asaph, the tiny City at the heart of the flooding, has, or had, their allotments right down next to the river.
I doubt there will be even a sign of them when the floods recede.
Thoughts are with them today.

It was an unseasonable 18.8 C here in Delaware yesterday though we've had some below freezing weather last month.

I'm thinking of doing some outdoor painting which is ridiculous just before Christmas.
And the bugs are having a resurgence just when they should be dying off.
Probably the tulips will be jumping out next. This is not good.

and I bet there are others who live where it is much colder than here.  Seems a long time ago that we had winters when we had to scrape the car just two or three times!

Did anybody see Channel 4's programme on weather and climate yesterday?

............... in East Northamptonshire a couple of hundred yards from the Bedfordshire border on a ridge.


Yep, the researcher was wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy too fond of them.  Mind you - I have never seen a yellow one like he had sliming up his hand - YUK!

Just as cold this morning and  hasn't got above freezing yet either.  From tomorrow apparently it's warm and rainy.  Here comes the next flood!  The fields around here are still partly waterlogged and now iced over, the bottom of the garden is barely drier than the surrounding fields, but at least the standing water went away just before the big freeze.

Still have not been able to plant garlic and shallots.  They are in seed trays in the greenhouse.  S'pose it will have to do .....................  until we get slightly drier conditions.

Walked to tennis this morning at 9.30 am to play outdoors in a set four, with one lady over 80, and two other elderly gentleman (these retired people are mad) and she does like to play every day, if possible.  In a really bad mood as could have stayed in bed and read my book, with tea and cat, then it started raining at 10 am when we were due to start playing, so had a cup of coffee at Club and got a lift home. Got wet walking to lovely Morrisons, and now going to have my lamb stew, and finish my jigsaw.  2morrow is meant to be sunny, so may be able to go to the lovely allotment and walk in the puddles. Roll on summer, cheap seeds at the ready.

The same here in the south west Jayb. My pond is flanked with flooding paving - it's only the stones round the rim that are holding the fish in and the water on the paving out!  :sad1: :home:. A  bit like a canal lock at present! I guess I'm lucky though that unless the street drains block my house should be safe. I feel for those poor people who are flooded in so many places in the south west.

Same here, garden resembles a swamp with some standing water, fields around us with lots of standing water. Some of that has been there for over a month now, but at least the house is not flooded.  I feel for those poor people who are having to deal with this and for whom Christmas is pretty much cancelled this year.

Yep, here too but I think at the moment no drizzle.  The standing water is still standing and I am beginning to wonder how the fruit trees are surviving the marshland conditions.  There is nowhere to drain to, surrounding fields are if anything worse affected than the garden and neighbouring gardens are just as bad.

Cold and frosty day here in Dorset. Cloudy though.At least the sun is shining a bit when the cloud lets it.

Attractive yet slightly worrying red sunrise this morning. The saying Red Sky in the morning Shepherds Warning sprang to mind, meaning bad weather on the way. Great.

Bracing ourselves for what might be to come on Friday.

PS Anyone here from Norfolk? That snowstorm you had yesterday sounded quite shocking. Hope all OK now.

-7.8C last night.  still snow on the ground.  Walked to town, pavements icy, but a bit better on way back when it got warmer.  Pretty grim, more of the same temperature tonight.  Last night I left the roof hatch open, because with our (now) up to date thick insulation the water tank and pipework are at risk of freezing.  Now freezing dense fog.  Must put more birdfood out.

Keep warm Jim any way you can, it is soooo cold.  Hope the heating engineer can sort you fast.  Do you have electric fires?

Freezing here - again very hard frost last night and won't get above zero during today either.  Again solid freezing fog.  We had a nice pink sunrise, which looked beautiful against the trees that have frost and snow on them, but minutes later that dreadful freezing fog took over again and has stayed.  Ah well, guess better now than in April or May .....................

Here the old snow never melted and we got twice as much on top yesterday.  Over a foot in places, some drifting.  Cleared out drive 3 times and MIL's drive twice and still got another 2 inches or so overnight.  Road is black with snow in the centre, guess in town it will be gone from the roads.  Must get that snow shovel working again as we want to go out later.

Cool but sunny, washing out on the line doing nicely. Cleared up the garden of dead growth, grass in the orchard needs cutting but too wet underfoot. Loads of green tips showing on the perrenials and bulbs, soon be spring. Looks like Wigan is having a Scottish summer.

A fresh fall of snow overnight but it's melted on teh roads and is starting to thaw in teh garden and fields.  Set to get down to -5C overnight and only +1C at best this weekend with a bit more snow expected.

Fine by me as I can't get out and garden for another 2 weeks at least and then won't be able to do much.   I shall be stir crazy by then I expect.

I do hope we don't get any more seriously damaging weather, especially once it does start warming up properly.  Last year a heavy late spring frost wiped out such a lot of plants.  Depressing.

It's been great working out on the allotment the past 2 days.  Sunny enough for my solar radio - and the soil's drying out really quickly with this wind.

But it's still f-f-freezing.  I've come home today with real "farmer" cheeks and my hands look like a man 50 years older (if that's possible!)

Still getting loads done - can't complain.

Here in East Sussex, yesterday was reported as the coldest early April day in these parts "since records began". I have lots of broad bean seedlings in loo rolls to fill up winter gaps, and several gutters full of pea seedlings ready to go out, but it is too cold for me, let alone for them.

Started off a wave of climbing beans today in the hope of weather warming up enough to put them out under fleece when they are up....

Nigel..I have never know such sustained WIND...it is now a week since it started and apart from a lull or two when the gusts changed direction a bit (and we became a little more sheltered) the force has just been mental...What has been weird is that normally with a gale you get wind then rain, then it blows through clears up and bobs your relative...but until this morning when the rain set in  there has been NO MORE than a speckle 2minute shower....just constant ROARING wind.
one of the neighbours 60  yds or so up the lane has an extremely tall Scots pine in his garden and we know when the wind is gale force by the bits of it that rain down on us here...a three foot branch from the top sailed over yesterday at about 60ft high to land in the field behind the next door neighbour on the other side of us...

Had enough now..resetting the stones/bricks etc on my cloches every hour or so.. :BangHead:(theyre big cloches at 25ftish long 6ft wide and 2ft6 high..it is a nightmare...fingers crossed the wind seems to have dropped a tad today but it is tipping down now...it will be floods next then...yes we are between two rivers and built on a flood plain...might try rice growing if this goes on, alwaays look on the bright side of life de do de dedodedodo-do  :sunny:

Not too bad, sunshine and showers. Badly needed rain. Got my May sowings done in between the rain and was even able to rake the solid lumps of clay loam. Just at the perfect wetness on the soil, comfy enough to work in a T-shirt and open jacket. 

Then I went out at 7-ish to get some salad stuff and the rain felt like it had been put into a freezer before it fell.

Weather forecast up the creek again.  Yesterdays rain was a couple of hours of drizzle during the night and a lovely sunny late afternoon/evening.

Todays rain has been about ten minutes drizzle and about two minutes heavier rain, we seem to have tiptoed through all the rain on the radar and stayed more or less dry.  Soil in garden is very dry indeed.

Just got back from the allotment, tried out my new grass hook, which doesn't work very well, and didn't water.  Got some Council compost and some manure, no wood chip yet.  Got home and the heavens opened, tennis at Queens cancelled but didn't realise that I was watching Murray in the final last year.  He was crying when he lost, can't stand him or his mother.
Off topic, again, but the sun is out now.  Just had to tell Kev about the lovely, loads and loads of Council compost.  :wave: :wave: :wave:

Had some rain yesterday filled one of my water butts, not quite filled the other.   :icon_cheers:  Now there is a dry layer below the surface of the soil.   But it did water my carrot seeds.  Had some sunshine too but it was very windy.

Today wind dropped.   

I have to pay £1/ bag for council compost: bit of a struggle filling bags and then carting it about  :tongue3:, nice to get it delivered free.   I am concerned about it containing selective weedkillers due to lawn clippings.

Hoping to get to the lottie today as still have stuff to go in.  So cold and very windy here yesterday, bit worried as to what damage they'll be.  At least everythings well watered given all the rain we've had last few days.
Digeroo which council are you getting your compost from?  One and only lot I bought from my council was such rubbish that I buy from lottie shop.  I no its dearer, but worth it for peace of mind and quality.

In France it's just totally odd. Some places this week have had a heatwave, others have had floods. We have had quite cool days, extremely cloudy with some drizzle but today there is a bit of sun so getting warm again (around 18 deg). The humidity in the air however is horrible, it has been what I would call "cloying" for the week. Sounds like perfect blight weather, boo hoo. But when I treat them it blimmin' well rains!

The last two days it's hit 90ļF (32ļC) - there's been no rest from the constant sun.

I'm starting to wonder whether deciding to garden in a place with no water supply was a good idea.  My well has gone dry, I'm almost out of rainwater reserves and there doesn't seem to be any chance soon of naturally occurring water coming from the sky!

Another scorcher, we have had over 30 here for a good week; They are saying storms this evening, but I will have to go water I think, I have not been able to since Sunday and heaven knows what it all looks like. I have mulched and soaked well then, but...
We are expecting some showers over the next few days here, just intermittent with again very hot stormy conditions. I don't know if it will be enough though. My rain barrels are empty and I am onto the taps on the site already.

Its 15c outside with very little sun and a wind of 14 mph with a  50% chance of rain, a sign that winter is on the way. The clocks change in around seven weeks, dark days and cold  days and nights- I think I can put these a way  :glasses9: till next spring.

The good news is we had 1/2 inch of rain last night, the bad news is that that is the total increase in water depth in my water butt from the entire roof.  So not even 1/2 a can full.

I looked at rain today and about 5:45 we had a large orange blob right on top.  Imagine my excitement.   We have had no significant rain for weeks.   Went outside and admired Orion.   Stars were magnificent no sign of a cloud anywhere.

Maybe tomorrow.

It looks like I chose the best time to visit my sister here in Calgary! I arrived in sunny, warm (17C) weather on the 14th and it has been like that ever since, with the exception of Wednesday when it was only 10C and very windy. There is so much sky here at 3000ft above sea level - and it's all bright blue. We are going to drive out to the small town just north of here where I used to live to have a look around. Apparently it has grown almost beyond recognition in the 14 years since I left so it should be interesting.

A sharp fall in temperatures is forecast for Sunday, so maybe this beautiful late 'Fall' weather will soon be over and there is a chance of snow flurries next week. I may yet get a chance to see some snow before I leave for soggy old England.

Can't say ..............................................  an hour ago we had a gale and rain was gushing down, then hail started, suddenly blue sky and a few white puffy clouds looking out of the front windows.  At the moment there is only the most gentle breeze, but looking out of the windows at the back, it is grey, dark skies and looks like more rain or even sleet. 

It is however perishing cold and unpleasant.

It is been rather wet here today and the wind has been blowing.   It will be interesting to see if any trees are still standing tomorrow.   

It has been tipping it down here for most of 17 hours.   Looks like there will be at least a couple of hours more.   

Swindon will be in chaos tomorrow, there is only one bridge over the railway line and the rest go under and have a tendency to fill up with several feet of water.

So much rain and wind, ferries cancelled, trees down, and flooding in some coastal towns. On the bright side very warm so even the central heating does not kick in. I need four wheel drive to get on the parking area as I have just levelled and filled in holes  before I dress it all with a few tons of gravel. It is a mudbath at the moment, but it should pack down hard when I can get on it and roll it. Poor dogs cannot get out in the garden and I have  temporary fenced off the decking for a run for them. It make house training the little one hard, but she has got it at last. Plenty of treats and pats on the head.

Supposed to come up again tonight, like last night and back to time inmemorial it seems like.

Warm, sunny day here.  Noticed a lot of butterflies down at the allotment.  Think they might have been Painted Ladies but not sure.  It's the earliest I've seen butterflies so hope this is the start of a long, hot summer.

The ground at the allotment is still quite wet but at least the fork went in easy.  Really got my work cut out as I now have 2 allotments  :toothy10:

Nice sunny day here until about 3pm when the clouds started to build.  Wasn't at the allotment long when it started to thunder but at least it didn't come overhead, sort of went round the valley.  It rained a bit but not enough to stop me working.  Thunder wasn't forecast here either.

This morning I was just about to set off for the allotment when the most almighty hailstorm with teeming rain crashed in from somewhere. Someone called on us shortly afterwards and said he was forced to pull off the A21 because his wipers could not cope with the hailstones. It's quieter now, but there are still, 2 hours later, small drifts of hailstones in corners of the garden. Glad I hadn't put out any seedlings to harden off.

Same here, glorious morning, deep blue skies.  Our tamarisk is in full pink bloom and looks stunning against that sky.

Different story yesterday evening.  Violent thunderstorms with downpours of rain and sustained hail - Awful.  After the bashing the plants had in the storms a couple of days ago, now this.  I daren't go out and investigate!  Fortunately the hail was small size, just that there was a lot of it.  Looked like the garden had got snow on it.

Yesterday I spent the afternoon at the plot, tidying up a lot and planting out the sweet peppers and tomatoes. I had just finished when a violent shower erupted with loads of tiny hailstones!!!!  aaarrrgghhh. I cowered in the shed with a thermos of coffee while the heavens opened up.
Luckily on inspection the tomatoes had just been dirt splattered and seemed unharmed. The peppers were cloched so they were OK. I felt  a bit guilty for them! But as it was my only day off, they had to go out. 
Nice weather predicted for the next 3 days so hopefully with some sun they will perk up. They have certainly been well watered!!!

Lovely sunny day here today in Enfield, north London.  All the seed trays are out in the garden to get some sun.  Hope it stays fine for next week as going to Poole, Dorset.  Going to look at the price of houses around Bournemouth, Wareham etc. Will try and plant out some toms and courgettes before I go.  Strawberries should be good when I get back, I hope.  :sunny: Put Dulce's bed back in the plastic greenhouse and left the door open, covered the water butt, not only with plastic cover but with wood in case he jumps on it.  Have got next door and granddaughter to feed him, so he should be OK.  Cat flap will be open so he can go in the kitchen, hopefully no dead birds brought in. Funny much I will miss my seeds/plants and the allotment and the cat, and only going away for 4 days.

It's been raining here for over a week and has been cold, wet, windy and so dull I've needed the lights on by day.   Fed up with it now.   I've managed quite a bit of gardening between downpours in the last 3 days but everything is starting to feel as damp as if I'd been camping in the Lake District for 3 weeks and when the sun shines it's as humid as Florida.   

Horrible - and the weeds just love it.   Treasures and crops not so happy.    Humph!   And the dogs come back filthy from walkies or the garden so the floor needs constant wiping.   Double humph!!

We have not had much rain for some time now.  They promised it Thursday but it was a cracker of a sunny day.  They promised it Friday and yes the spots did join up just, it was promised Sunday and yes there was three minutes of drizzle and then  lovely again in the afternoon.

My runner beans are drying up.

It was lovely first thing this morning very lovely at the Lottie.  Now it is hazy sunnyside, with rain drifting in across Wales, not convinced we will get any.  Met office down graded the two rain drops to one and that will probably miss us.

It is going to be a scorcher here, 35 deg... I ran down to the plot before work (literally) and watered and threw a sheet of fleece over the newly planted brassicas and leeks, to give them some shade. I also put a plastic fruit crate over the newly sown seeds to shade them. At least it will make the tomatoes ripen more quickly!!! We recently had some rain and drizzle so the ground is not too dry. But I think the poor veg will suffer in the heat like us.

Same here - some yacon tops are frosted.  Squash and courgettes are gone.  Late beans still hanging on.  For once I have been successful with Cobra - and just spotted new flowers!  But they are enjoying the warmth of a compost dalek right next to them.  f

Oca and Jerusalem Artichokes are in flower.  That's a rare sight here.  The outdoor tomatoes that made it through the blight are still flowering and producing, but I am taking off good sized green fruit to ripen indoors, because blight is still around although not as rampant as it is so much cooler.

Yesterday we had inches of rain and it was quite windy and nasty.  OH called it 'soaking rain'.  Roll on the promised Indian Summer  :wave:

Absolutely freezing in Cornwall, ground hard and wind icy.  Just spent the afternoon in the greenhouse with seeds and trays and dog lying on the grass in the sun - lovely and warm until the sun moved round. Dog gave up first, now both in with a cup pf tea.

Windier than yesterday, I got caught in what I think must have been a mini tornado, one minute I was digging away on the allotment, the wind all of a sudden got really fierce, netting, plastic sheets bin lids flying about all around me, then a small branch fell out of the sky and cracked me on the head. Ran into the shed for shelter until it stopped, I thought the shed was going to take off it was shaking like mad.

Jumped in the motor when I was ready to come home, checked the mirror, then I noticed that there was quite a bit of claret on my face and in my beard. Good job I did not meet anybody they would have thought I was a mass murderer on the loose.

Yesterday OH sat outside and ate our lunch in the sunshine.  He was gardening and I was, unfortunately, stuck indoors the prep work for repainting our kitchen and hall.   Today started O, same division of labour, but is now grey and damp - what I call drismal - so lunch indoors.   Best crack on so I'm done by the weekend and can get outside where I really want to be, with my plants and the veggie plot.

Good luck to anyone hardening off babies to make way for tender plants.   Lovely job all that juggling for space and anticipating tasty crops.

Lovely day here we focused on getting the pond setup and it took the entire day !!

Emptied the water and connected hose for pump and then filled it 750ltrs and placed plants onto shelves.
We then painted (wood protector) the lid for the pump and we lined the underneath with some foam strips which will help with keeping water out. And we then tried to support to waterfall and seal the hole we made in the wood for the pipes to come through. Still need some more flat rocks as the bricks we have used might not put up with poor weather.

I picked up more soil and thats about the only gardening thing i have managed today :( however off tomorrow and peas soaking from saturday can be planted tomorrow :) i have gardener coming to do some of the heavy jobs in front garden tomorrow so thats another job i can tick off my list :)

Went to Bosham, West Sussex yesterday to look at a caravan and got stuck in a pub on Hayling Island as the rain was torrential, but as OH driving he couldn't drink.  The sun came out whilst we were stuck on the M25 for about an hour.  I hate the M25, always get delays.

Well we had our first glancing blow with frost.  The min/max thermometer said 3.7C a couple of nights ago, but 2 courgette plants have turned to mush.  Nothing else so far.  Fingers crossed I have some late beans flowering and the runner beans have developed another flush of flowers too, would be nice to get a late harvest there.  The Achocha have only just started this year and I am looking at several squashes that are still only half sized.  Anybody else had any damage?  :wave:

Hi Galina a week ago I had to pull up all my squash plants as a very cold snap had killed them off. I have quite a few butternuts that have hard skins but they are small...still at least they are edible & do have decent seeds in them but it would have been nice for them to get a bit bigger. The cold grey start to the Summer here really delayed the growth of my squash plants as they only grew in 3 months what they would have done in weeks had there been any proper daylight. Sunshine only really started here in mid July.

Tying things down in case they blow away, protecting the broadies against any snow damage, checking the 4 x4 in case we have to go out. But nothing happened, cold yes but calm and sunny. Still better to be prepared. I see they are trying to say there was a bit of overkill on the East Coast preventative measures, but I bet they would be shouting louder if it did go pear shaped and nothing was done.

couldnt agree more ace it was very windy here yesterday afternoon  went to the plot this morning no damage  my anti leaf curl tent was a little disturbed  however every thing else was fine i think down the coast at jaywick it came within 2ft of the wall if it had been a north east wind rather than a north westerly it would have breached but better safe than sorry i say anyway its what we pay council tax for and income tax vat and allthe other taxes the uk govement enforce by stealth

Took OH best part of three hours to get home last night as flooding had closed the A38N at Burton... drier this morning but I have to get MIL to York for a Crem at 1pm (not hers!) so should get to see some flooding en route, but not have to drive through it. Raining here ATM but it doesn't really mean it...

Warm and sunny. Compost heaps sorted, picked loads of stuff for soup. Strimmed all my paths and started sorting the shed but got hungry so came home for breakfast and then strimmed the orchard. Filthy dirty now covered in damp grass cuttings and rotten apple bits. S'pose I had better have a brush down before she comes home.

A bright and dry weekend... wasted (from a gardening point of view) spent the weekend driving around the North of England gathering relatives for the funeral. No doubt the first named storm currently battering Western Ireland will land here soon and keep me off the lotties for the rest of the week.

A reasonably good day to be out on the lottie... tidied up some of the greenhouses, mainly to make room to "paint" the pallet toppers I have had in drying out ready for filling with the spent compost ready for the early roots...
Ha a celebratory beer in the big greenhouse.. and of course some harvesting.. parsnips, leeks, sprouts celeriac, swede, carrots... yum!

You have got a point there, because winds are stronger now than they have been, they started naming storm lows.  Doesn't make us feel any better about them though.   :BangHead:

Looks like a decent frost on the way. The really wet winter has flattened my rough dug plot and it is too wet to get it done again so the frost will not be breaking up the ground and getting rid of the critters this year.

That's only 60mph.   

Don't mean to sound unsympathetic but we have that speed forecast till 10am tomorrow.   

Parts of the UK have it far worse with floods, uprooted trees, damage to buildings including a windmill that's lost its hat and sails and people trapped in cars under fallen trees.

Belgians have far greater speeds and have been advised not to go outdoors or travel unless absolutely necessary.  Northern France is also living in "interesting times" today and tomorrow.

Ciara is causing havoc well into mainland Europe now and weather forecasters seem to think there will be 2 or 3 more such storms over the next couple of weeks.

Been out all day and dark when I got in so have to hope our polytunnel is OK. 

Good luck with all your PTs, greenhouses and cold frames and fences..

Hi Ya, The weather here is calm at the moment, I bet I wish I never said that, There is rain forecast for later and storm Dennis over the weekend. I may spread some compost about or wait. If we have another blow like last weekend then why tidy up. I have heard also that another storm is on the cards for next week end as well. I know it's only February but last year it was snow that hit. Still heads up and batten down the good weather will arrive eventually. Happy gardening all

Hi Ya, Watching the news and my heart goes out to those affected. It has been windy here and just 1/2"of rain. Watching the cars get floated away is terrible. I feel they have got to stop the building as the water has no where to go. They are building round us like crazy and don't care about the environment. It's not for my generation but our grandchildren though they will grow up and it will be the norm as they don't know any different. I find it soul destroying.

Hi Ya, Oh my word that is horrific. Is that your plot? where are the plots? Was that wind  or water or a mix of both? I hope all are not to broken hearted and they manage to clean up and get going again. We have suffered damage but mainly those with greenhouses. One lady has had her insect hotel trashed. Compost bins and lids blown around but nothing like the pictures you have posted. Good luck all and hope you overcome the disaster.

We woke up to howling winds and heavy sleet.   It has calmed down a bit now but is expected to be very bad later on today and all tomorrow.  Half of France is on a yellow weather warning and another quarter over to the east is orange for really strong winds.   Set to be really bad in Ireland and Scotland again this weekend and, no doubt, yet more rain for the Severn catchment area.

Desperate for all those already flooded and for those praying their banks and flood barriers will hold.   Much easier to sort out a lottie than a home after flooding but still terrible.

Hi Ya, Well the weather has improved slightly today No rain, sun is shining but with a very stiff lazy wind. It's a lazy wind as it won't go round but straight though you. Had to pack it in after an hour. I am on tablets that don't help. Never mind it's still an improvement.
Or as my grandfather would have said
"Thaís jusí tew lazy tígo round, aní so that go clean threw yer!"

Lovely day yesterday in London - got the poly cleared out and found a chilli from last year hanging on to life.
Today looks a bit drab but ok to do some work in.

Weather today in Essex hasn't been too bad. Had a couple of hours on the plot before it started to rain. Hopefully tomorrow may give a few more hours as it is now time for serious allotmenting.

marvelous morning, a tad windy but warm enough to leave the jacket off. Dug over a fair old bit before I ran out of puff. Then just after I got home hailstones and squalls with enough sun in between to dry them up.

Similar here yesterday, and looks like we are set for the same. The central heating failed on Monday, water coming through the ceilings, have got the water back on, but not the heating.. despite having a "policy" with a well known company who came out and checked the boiler but decided it was the "system" and so not their problem... must be getting soft in my old age as it isn't particularly cold but I'm missing it.. it was only Feb '19 we were out sunbathing in a heatwave..

I turn down the thermostat to zero most mornings as we have a couple of hounds that like to go in and out first thing to do what they have to do. It is pointless having heating on with doors wide open. Went to turn it down this morning and noticed I did not turn it up again last night. Didn't feel cold though. But another fine morning today, I'll wait until the roads are clear of workers then hopefully get on with some more digging.

Same for me, please.
Thunderstorm on Dartmoor this PM (www.netweather.tv/live-weather/radar),
rather have a steady 1/2", that would be nice. Fingers crossed.

Well I've got what was required, 15mm so far, but have had to wait a week to get it.Bit like the post at the moment. Looks as if its going to remain coolish, that will let the rain just soak in nicely. Planting in earnest as the frost risk recedes. Just got to hope theres not a sting in the tail!
