It seems incredible that UK should ever require hosepipe bans! A few weeks of sunshine and we have drought conditions, when only a few months ago it was horrendous flooding!

Not enough and then too much. Yikes.

Oddly enough, Dave, although we had two inches of rain yesterday our beck remains very low. The farmer says the ground is so thirsty that it has soaked all the rain up.

Thanks All
I was really thinking about how the poor folk who are being inundated must feel when they are told so firmly that the hose pipe ban stays. It seems a rather gratuitous piece of info' to bother them with.

I take the point about the ground being thirsty. A week or so back the RHS said that gardens would need at least 4 inches of rain if the plants were not to become distressed.
