As one of the hottest months of the year, it is important that you regularly water your garden. As water butts may well be at their lowest this time of year, use grey water wherever possible. If you’re planning on holidaying, then make sure you enlist the help of family and friends to keep you garden watered.

Things to think about:

Pruning – restricted fruits and wisteria

Deadhead flowering plants regularly

Watering with grey recycled water or stored rainwater

Collect seeds from plants you enjoyed

Harvest vegetables
