Summer survival – key reminders

  1. As the weather heats up, top up your mulch on garden beds to lock in moisture
  2. Don’t forget to water shrubs and flowering plants more frequently as they begin to bloom to ensure they remain resilient throughout the summer season
  3. Now’s the time to move delicate potted plants to the shade to avoid heat burn
  4. Check your irrigation system is working properly. It has laid dormant over the cooler months and may be prone to leaks.

Don’t forget to top up your mulch!

 Spring is a great time to visit other gardens for some new ideas before it gets too hot.
