In the garden this month with Hazel King
With a hot dry summer in front of us think about the following:-
- Water – conserve its use. Apply to vegetables, pots and special plants. If possible, move pots to a shady area, particularly if they are placed on an exposed terrace or in a windy position.
- Add compost, manure and water saving products to garden beds, and water saving products to pots. Add mulch to pots.
- Apply mulch to the garden following rain. Do not mulch dry soil. Do not water lawns. Remember that dry nature strips return to green following rain.
- Take note of those plants coping with drought conditions. HK
