Garden Notes

Garden Club The Villager

I have made a real blunder in part of my garden. We all do it. Planting things too close, putting tall plants in front of short ones, or having to cut back a shrub every year because it is too big for its position. My mistake was to plant iris at the feet of clematis. I know very well that clematis like lots of water and to have their bases in shade, while iris like it well drained and love the sun on their tubers. This has been proved by the clematis in a full border flowering well into September and those with the sun on their roots giving up in mid August. I have to make a choice and the iris will have to go and I must find something to plant in front of the clematis that will provide the cool root run they like. There has been mildew on one clematis because of the lack of water. ...

Farm News

The Villager

The last article that I wrote for the Villager was in early August 2015 and I commented how many insects and butterflies were on the farm in that spring – the harvest that followed had the highest yielding crops to date but the prices received for the grain went down. I am now writing these notes after most of the 2016 crops have been harvested and it has not been a bumper year – the wet weather in June affected the flowering period (yes all crops do have flowers – but not the pretty colourful ones) and so the grains have generally been smaller and some were diseased or shrivelled. Below average yields have been reported around the country and one grain marketing company has estimated that the UK wheat harvest is 13.9 million tonnes compared with 16.2 million tonnes last year. The good news is that for my group of farms last year’s drying charges of about £14000 have been reduced to £3300 this year after the dry August, with only the beans to cut, and the quality is reasonable. ...
