There was an article in the Guardian on Saturday, talking about the possible consequences of ten wet summers in a row. In it, Alys Fowler was quoted as saying there’s nothing for gardeners to fear from unpredictable weather if we switch to less tender veg, grow as large a variety of plants as possible, and go back to growing cottage garden flowers. If your borders are looking a little lacklustre in our washout summer this year, Suttons have a Cottage Garden Plants Collection for immediate despatch; originally £44.95, it’s now just £14.99 – a saving of 68%.
