It's a scorcher! Hottest day in April for 70 years

Grass Clippings - Hottest April Day for 70 YearsWhat a difference a week makes!  We skipped Spring and now it really is summer... for a few days at least!  The trains into London this morning were 2/3rds empty as workers plan an extra long weekend in the sunshine.

The Beast from the East is long gone, and it’s official, Britain is now basking in record levels of heat.  Temperatures soared to 27.9C in the London area of Northolt, shortly after midday on Thursday – making it the hottest day in April since 1949.

Four hours later – the 69-year-old record was nearly broken when the temperature reached 29.1C in St James Park, central London – just 0.3C shy of the 29.4C temperature recorded in 1949 in Camden, north London.

Our specialist lawn advice this weekend is to forget about your lawn and head out into the sunshine while it lasts!  As I type this in the garden from our place the South Coast!
