February in the garden



It is very hot and dry. We really need a good down pour, preferably at night. Until that happens try to keep everything alive without using too much drinking water. Vegetable plants especially will need careful watering if you are going to benefit from the produce that you have worked so hard for. Conserve all the water that you can. Bath water and washing up water is better used on the garden than sent down the drain. Flowering plants should look fantastic this year as long as they have some moisture. Just try to enjoy this amazing summer.
