Local water supplier, Affinity Water is asking its customers to think carefully about what they plant in their gardens as the last ten months have been much drier than average. With a hot summer a possibility, people are being encouraged to use dry weather resistant bedding plants and are being offered tips to keep their garden healthy to ‘weather’ the dry spell.
Mike Pocock, Affinity Water’s Asset Strategy Director said: ”Despite the recent rainfall in early May, it is important to remember that the last ten months have actually been a lot drier than average.
“With the onset of summer, we continue to ask our customers to use water wisely. Not only is this good for the environment, but it will also save them energy and money.
“It’s important to choose plants that thrive in dry conditions, such as Alyssum, Geraniums, cornflowers French and African Marigolds, Petunias, Aquilegia, Campanula and Heuchera lavender. Look for the full sun symbol on the plant labels when buying new plants as this indicates their tolerance to dry conditions.
Try to make the most of moisture by adding a layer of tree bark, gravel or compost to keep the sun off the soil; this will help retain the moisture”.
Here are some more top tips to help you become a water efficient gardener:
