Wise water use in the garden

Be water wise in the garden

If you’re buying new plants then look for ones that don’t need watering and
are drought tolerant.

Get water butts! As many as possible linked up to save water. Get lids on them
though to stop accidents.

Use water retaining crystals in hanging baskets if you must have them!

Water in the early morning or evening when the sun isn’t as strong.

Don’t water lawns. They’ll survive better than you think.

Mulch. And top up where you mulched last year.

Dig in plenty of organic matter to make the soil better at retaining water.

Keep an eye on the weather forecast to see if it’s going to rain.
