Tips to keep your garden healthy this summer


As temperatures continue to soar, our lovely friends at Haskins have shared their tips for keeping your garden looking lush and healthy.

  • Water plants late in the evening when the temperatures have dropped to reduce evaporation and to reduce humidity
  • Use a sprinkler to help soften hard-baked grounds
  • Top up birdbaths daily
  • Put out water in saucers for wildlife to keep them hydrated
  • Avoid digging soil as this will accelerate water loss through evaporation
  • Don’t leave patches of bare earth exposed to the sun, as this can lead to damage from UV rays and fast evaporation of soil moisture
  • Opt to grow succulents or Mediterranean plants in areas that are always exposed to the sun
  • Wear sunscreen when gardening outdoors
