It's Planting Season! (Once this rain goes away!)
As we come to the end of May and enter the beginning of June, we would like to supply our readers with some fun ideas to get those gardens flourishing this summer, it's not too late to get started!
Of course living in England also means having to deal with a lot of not-so-great weather, leaving us all thinking when are we finally going to receive some nice weather for our plants to grow...
The UK experienced 63.5mm of rain in the first two weeks of May (91% expected rainfall for the entire month!) and with the easing of lockdown restrictions, this wasn't the ideal weather to accompany this with!
Some good news!
However, according to the Met Office, things should be looking up soon.
" The unsettled weather is expected to continue through the weekend – though may start to become a little brighter next week.
“ Into next week, there is a chance of more settled conditions to gradually become established,” the Met Office said. " The weather looks set to take a turn for the better, with warmer and drier conditions on the way for most.
June sees average highs of 19ºC, with lows of 10ºC"
So with the more positive weather on the horizon, what are some of the most unique, beautiful, and aromatic plants to grow this time of year? (Click for images)
