Make the most of
the wet weather by
getting a water butt

Improving drainage
for waterlogged soil

Waterlogged soil can cause plants to drown. To improve drainage, try mulching over the root area or adding stones or gravel to the bottom of your pot plants.

Mulch your garden

Woody mulches work well and help stop weed growth. Organic matter or water retaining gel are also great options when planting flowers and hanging baskets.

Water Butt

If you haven’t already got one, a water butt is a great way to collect rainwater to water your garden.

Hoses and sprinklers can use up to 1,000 litres of water an hour- equivalent to more than 12 baths - so rainwater harvesting can be a great way to make you more water efficient and save money all year round.
