It all depends on many variables youll find , light , temps , strains ect .. But when rain is in excess it can be a disaster for flowering plants .. Fungus is more likely to attack when its damp and wet ... I wish I could help you more but theres so many variables and the most critical that comes to my mind is drainage , if the plants have poor drainage a hard rain can drown them and continous rain can do the same even when drainage is moderate . . So have fun and do what you have to there in order to harvest , many people come up with a method to fight the odds of nature .............PPS

People who grow vegatables for market in high rain area's often use plastic covers during rain events use plastic to cover their more delicate crops.

I live in Western Oregon, where it also rains a lot. As long as you have ample drainage in your soil, it shouldn't cause a problem there. Use lots of coarse Perlite if you have to.

The main problems you will face are powdery Mildew and Botrytis (budrot). You would be well off to build some form of greenhouse over the garden. Many people in my area build them out of PVC pipe and visqueen (link provided as a reference only, I have not done business with the supplier and am not recommending them).


Here is an example of one.

just be careful. You don't want to do anything that will impede upon airflow through the foliage and especially to the buds themselves. Reduced airflow will add to the problem.
