This year, like the rest of the country, we enjoyed a glorious long hot summer with little rain. This called for extra watering sessions to keep out flowers in tip top condition, especially for new plants. In the peak of the hot weather the volunteers rallied with a watering rota every other day. The teams favourite new “gadget” of a hosepipe length fitted to the taps really helped prevent sore backs and wet arms!
Our perseverance paid off and we were rewarded with happy, beautiful plants all around.
