Re: October 2013 predictions?

Does seem early for a Greenland block, probably reflects how quite the Atlantic is at the moment. Not good signs with a huge pool of cold weather coming down over Scandinavia - oh well could be worse if this worse January with those Synoptics :shock:

Re: Musa Basjoo in Pots when to bring indoors

Why would you bring basjoo indoors unless a harsh frost is forecast?

Re: Dwarf Cavendish Flowering

I like my banana's a bit more ripe :D :D yes in theory if they ripened but realistically not likely to happen.

Tom you have jinxed the weather :lol: :lol: looks there could be the first frost of autumn later next week. Time to take care of the tender plants.

Re: October 2013 predictions?

Well Autumn is definitely here soon with polar air streaming into Siberia and Northern Scandinavia next week. What does this mean for our Winter I dont have a clue :lol: :lol:

Best just to enjoy the next few days of decent weather I think it may be last for this year.

Re: October 2013 predictions?

How can any one possibly predict what the winter is going to be like. Even the Met office with all the resources at their disposal don't have a clue.

Re: Your daily weather blog -June 2011 onward

After the rain cleared through this morning turned out be a nice sunny day. Max of 18C

Looks like we may get a chance to dust off the BBQ's for the last time this weekend, infact it looks very nice out until midweek. Temps up to the mid 20's - not bad for the end of Sept :shock:

Dwarf Cavendish Flowering

My Dwarf Cav which I have had inside, south facing lounge for almost 4 years is flowering this year ( will try and put some pics later).

Just wondering whats the chance of it producing fruit and will it die after it has flowered?
