Bentworth Fete

Fete The Villager

The Bentworth fete was held on 7th July and what a successful day! Lovely weather, England winning the quarter final, plenty of people attending the fete and lots of money raised for local good causes and charities. We were a bit concerned that numbers might be down due to the heat and football, but with the help of Lorna Garrett, Dave Hutley and their technical team, we were able to show the football which was a great relief to many. ...

Garden Notes

Garden Club The Villager

The hot weather in June and July certainly showed you the vulnerable plants. This is the first time that I have seen a hosta in deep shade wilting. The problem here is that the shade is caused by the trees and shrubs around it and their roots are winning. The Phlox are especially hit by drought since they are so surface rooting. It is amazing what a bit of shade can do. Roses in part shade lasted much longer. The growers say that fours hours sunlight a day is ample for them, but I have found they will do well on less if they have overhead light. Phlox are very happy in shade. Clematis will do well as they hate hot sun on their roots. ...

Farm News

The Villager

When I wrote for the Villager 4 weeks ago my weather request was for long days of bright light and ½ inch of rain every week and certainly no extremely hot temperatures or strong sunlight. My hopes of a weather pattern to maximise the yield potential of the crops have been disappointed in a big way. Never mind the crops – the weather has been stunning with great warmth. Will the high temperatures and lack of rainfall affect the crop yields? Yes but how much remains to be seen. The first fields have been cut in the area but it is too early to draw any conclusions on yield trends yet but it is true that usually the price per tonne rises if the harvest is smaller so there is a compensating effect. ...
