It’s almost two months since we have seen rain in the walled garden, with the summer heatwave looking to get even warmer as we head towards the end of the week. Our garden has been mighty thirsty, and as a result the lawn is looking yellow rather than green, much like most of the lawns in Suffolk.
We are all doing our part to conserve water, by watering regularly, but with the right amounts, so that no drop is wasted. To make things a bit more fun, we have employed super soakers for watering duties, and have also enjoyed cooling down a bit when plants have been missed!
Importantly we have also tailored garden jobs and activities so that we are able to get everything done, but be able to take advantage of working in the cooler shade with plenty of drinks to hand.
With our annual trips week coming up, we are hoping that the current warm spell will continue, so that our week of fun out and about the county is under a bright blue sky.
