Norfolk is experiencing a prolonged heatwave. It is now over 2 months since we had rain which has been fantastic for our holiday guests although quite hard on the cottage garden.
Fortunately, when we planted the garden we picked plenty of drought-resistant cottage garden flowers and plants that grow well in Blakeney's sandy soil such as hollyhocks, lavender, climbing roses, catmints, agapanthus, buddleia (commonly known as the butterfly bush as it is very attractive to butterflies and usually covered in them all summer long) Some of the less drought resistant plants such as the phloxes are struggling and we have to make sure we water them every Friday on changearound day.
