September 2014

We had a very dry and mild month. Our highest max was 26°C and we had an average of 21°C. Air minimum temperatures fluctuated but tended to stay within the low teens so there were no very cold nights.
We only had 18.1mm of rain over the course of the month which is very low compared to the month's average of around 50mm. There was an 11-day drought period at the beginning of the month and then six days without rain at the close of the month. This caused some of the Garden's flowers to go over quite quickly.

Start to look out for crisp autumn colours over the next few weeks and keep an eye out for mushrooms across all areas of the Garden.
