Driest summer at Haddon Hall

Driest summer at Haddon Hall

Along with the rest of the country’s gardeners, here at Haddon we are doing our best to battle the extraordinarily dry conditions that have been with us now for well over a month. 
It would be untrue to say we have had no rain at all, as a couple of sharp showers have kicked up the dust on the garden paths, but the sort of prolonged spells of persistent precipitation we so desperately need are still nowhere to be seen.
