Make the most of your watering

Why save water?

The UK has a reduced amount of water available in comparison to other European countries. Climate change plays a big factor, as well as population changes and lifestyle choices people make causing pressure to our water supplies. Therefore it is very important to consider how we use water to ensure enough is available to us at home as well as businesses and the environment.

Watering Plants

someone watering plants with watering canThe best time to water your plants is in the morning. When the sun comes up plants will begin to absorb the water. To ensure your plants have enough water or whether they require watering there are simple ways to check. Push your finger into the soil around 2.5cm to see if the soil is moist before watering. Plants in containers and baskets need watering more frequently than plants in borders as there roots can not grow as freely to find water in the soil to absorb.

Look out for poor production of flowering and foliage, dull leaves and stems, symptoms of powdery mildew.  These are all signs that your plants may need watering. To help the environment you can source rainwater by installing a water butt in your garden. Alternatively you can use tap water however this requires the use of energy to provide the water to your homes.
