Cold spring ‘leads to unexpected blooms’

The spring season emerged much later than usual this year – and when it did arrive it remained a good deal chillier than usual. 

Gardeners up and down the country will undoubtedly have spotted this trend, as it has had a significant impact on plant life. 

It led to the development of a late growing season, which has resulted in the emergence of summer colours being kept on hold as plants not normally seen in flower in May are still blooming. 

Chief horticultural adviser at the Royal Horticultural Society Guy Barter specified that most gardens in the UK will be about two weeks behind the regular growing season. 

"There's been a delay in some of the early summer colour, but with a bit of warm weather and sunshine, it won't be long before the summer-flowering plants burst into bloom," he remarked. 

Gardeners can ensure their soil is kept in best shape no matter what the quirky weather conditions throw at them by getting a machine from our range of cultivators and tillers.
