Plants get just as thirsty as us in this heat, so here are a few tips on keeping your garden, pots and houseplants well hydrated:
- A long, deep watering every two or three days is far more beneficial than a light, daily water. In hot weather be generous.
- Early morning or late evening is the best time to water, as less will evaporate. Avoid watering when the sun is shining on the garden – droplets on leaves can magnify the sun’s rays and scorch them.
- Water at the base of the plant to avoid getting leaves wet.
- Remember that watering washes away naturally-occurring nutrients in the soil, so the more you water, the more you need to fertilise. This is especially true of plants in pots.
- Check your houseplants every other day. Stick your finger in the soil and judge the moisture levels a couple of centimetres down.
- Know your plants’ needs – some need to be kept moist all the time, but others are more forgiving. Give us a shout if you are unsure!
- Again, a deep watering less regularly is better than a light one everyday.
- Don’t water in direct sunlight to protect those leaves.
- Feed weekly during the Spring and Summer months to replace those washed-away nutrients.
Of course, children are always welcome and we have some very special dishes just for them.
Expertly brewed coffee, superfood lattes and a wide selection of teas are served all day – perfect with a slice of one our refined sugar-free cakes.
Whatever outdoor space you call your own,
plants and gardening can be a natural part
