I have just got back from two weeks holiday in the south of France the weather was brilliant, but now I can not wait to get cutting down ready for winter. The weather last year really caught me on the hop so to speak, so I am not going to get caught again this year, I have already started with the cutting back and weeding as it had been really windy while we were away quite a few plants have now not got any leaves on anyway. We are also getting to manure heap started and so we are spreading this as we go.
I am also hoping to get a few plants in to replace losses from last winter as this never got done early in the year due to time and then the dry weather. We have a list as long as my arm of jobs to do this end of the year so we are hoping for a couple of months of reasonable weather to get them all done (we never get them all done)!
