Copious watering from our tap now seems the order of the day. As everyone only turns up once a week, the majority of our work-days are spent watering seedlings, pot-plants and small trees...just to keep them alive till next week.
The reward for all this watering is simply to see our nursery beds vaguely damp for a couple of days, and the plants still green and growing. We have put up shade netting where possible and put some pot plants in shallow trays filled with water.
On a different note, the wild flower seeds germinated well in the meadow, with plenty of colour. Currently there are lots of wild carrot thriving in their new home.
The learning curve is wonderfully endless.
