How does the weather impact plants?
2021 has been a year of unpredictability in many ways, with the weather topping the chart.
The great British summer time appeared in full force this year, bringing with it humidity and overcast skies with a flurry of showers – wreaking havoc on the growth of our plants.
With little sunshine to nurture gardens across Britain, the delayed growing season means that many gardens are still flourishing, taking up precious planting space for those winter blooms
Speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk Shannon Keary, host of the ‘Diaries of a Lady Gardener’ podcast said: “The delayed growing season this year has meant that most of the beds aren’t yet free.
“It’s definitely going to be a bit of a puzzle to ensure all the bulbs go out at the right time, despite there still being lots of veg still growing and flowers blooming that I can’t bear to dig up just yet.”
