    I water my garden every night but I read the other day you shouldn't do that other than pots, hanging baskets or new plants. Once a week is quite sufficient for established shrubs and plants so your garden should be OK. I would find it really hard not to water for 6-7 days in this heat, I'd feel I was starving them.

    Yes, the pots and new plants are the concern and although I would water them every night, I know DS won’t be that diligent ;)

    My tomatoes went to a friend to look after :)

    Que cera!

    Just home and straight out with the hose ..... 3 or 4 casualties (possibly terminal) but not too bad really given the extreme conditions.

    They are only plants after all so in the great scheme of things, ho hum ;)

    It is fortunate your rose does not read poetry but what an odd name.
