Hot Weather Garden Care
Hot weather garden care
As the weather gets hotter we all get a bit cheerier, and here are a few tips to keep your garden happy too!
Spray your greenhouse with shade paint or put up net shading to prevent overheating in hot spots
Lower the blades on your mower for shorter grass through the summer unless the weather is very dry
Don't panic about watering your grass, it can be surprisingly resilient and excellent at dealing with a lack of water
Adding organic matter up to a depth of about 25mm into your soil can dramatically increase its moisture holding capacity.
It's best to water your plants early in the morning or in the evening as the sun shining through water can cause damage to the leaves
Water The Right Plants
Speaking of water, surface rooting vegetables will require more water but nothing much changes for deeper rooting plants.
