Well it really is summer over here, it is hell hot. It does remind me of my winter trips to see my sister in tropical Australia….it was not the reason I moved to England. But I have made the time to do some of the summer jobs that I do not always get around to, summer pruning the fruit. Jonny had a friend down yesterday who has spent a year working on fruit with the RHS so I got her up to the fruit cage to sort out the gooseberries, we gave them a late summer pruning. I was reminded of something Christopher said to me, the best time to prune something is when you can get to it. They have since had a good watering and weed.
