TOP TIPS for the garden during a heatwave18th July 2022
Don’t worry too much about the grass
Your lawn may start to look a little brown and patchy in areas but don’t panic! Believe it or not, your grass is great at bouncing back from dry weather. As soon as it starts to cool the grass will return to its green self in no time.
Another way to help is to reduce the amount you mow the lawn. During periods of dry hot weather, reduce down to mowing once a week.
Only water plants in the early morning or evening
Rethink your watering schedule on hot days and only water in early mornings and evenings
Watering on a hot day when the sun is out will lead to moisture loss and evaporation, not only just does this waste essential water but it won’t give the plants the drink they really need. Watering your plants in the early morning or evening will allow for the plants and surrounding soil to absorb as much as possible before the heat of the day hits.
