Be Water Wise - Watering your Garden:


Do you use a water butt to collect your recycled water? Gardens love rainwater, which can easily be collected in a water butt. Always water either first thing in the morning or in the cool of the evening, so that less water is lost through evaporation and plants get a longer drink. Don't forget to use your watering can and not your hosepipe!

All entries must be sent to City in Bloom by Tuesday 3rd of July.
