Meteorological summer officially started on 1st June and we're hoping for sunny weather to get out in the garden and warm days to spend time at the beach. But there's no doubt that our weather can be very unpredictable.
Back in June 1975, snow fell in various parts of the country, interrupting cricket matches and causing consternation. Some of the coldest June temperatures were actually recorded on the Norfolk/Suffolk border in 1962, when Santon Downham experienced a cold snap of a shivering -5.6 degrees!
However the record for the hottest June temperature was set in 2003, when Kent experienced a blazing 38.5 degrees.
So this year we hope it will be a warm and sunny summer, but just to hedge your bets, you could opt for a Horsford conservatory or orangery so that you can enjoy your garden whatever the weather.
