Is your garden looking rather lacklustre thanks to soaring temperatures?

Landscaping experts Marshalls share their top tips for gardens in the heat.

Don’t mow the lawn during the hot spell

During a heatwave your lawn will be trying to gain access to water and therefore should not be mowed

Don't water your plants throughout the day

A natural instinct during a heatwave is to water plants multiple times a day but this can lead to overwatering. Instead, plants should be watered once a day during the cooler periods, in the morning or evening using a watering can to avoid hose pipe usage.

Water your plants during cool periods 

Don’t plant new greenery

Digging up soil during intense heat can cause a loss of water and increased temperature for the soil, both of these can lead to unsuccessful planting.

Add shade to your vegetable patch

Vegetable patches are growing in popularity with people wanting to be more self-sufficient, in the extreme heat, provide them with some shelter to ensure they remain healthy and ultimately edible.
