Planning your garden with a little help from your friends
We hope you’ve been able to find some respite over our hot summer and enjoy your garden, perhaps in the shade of a pergola or favourite tree. Now, as we look towards a new season, is a great time to plan and decide how you want your garden to look next year.
With climate change making it more likely that these UK summer temperatures could be repeated, this issue we look at the plants you can choose that cope better with dry conditions.
There are ways that we can design your garden and also improve your soil conditions to help. Do ask us about that.
Meanwhile, the RHS and RSPB have been providing tips on how you can conserve water, including installing a water butt to collect any rainwater. With the wetter seasons ahead, a water butt can be very useful as a water supply in dry conditions, especially if there is a hosepipe ban.
In other news, we have also got some thoughts on new places to go to have some fun – so grab a glass of something delicious and read on!
