Summer is here and overall it has been quite kind to us….so far! The flooding rain at the end of November soaked right into the ground so it was much needed. Hopefully, there will be more to come.
The start of summer is a great time to get your garden ready for the rest of the summer heat. Mulching is a great way to lessen evaporation of moisture from the ground. The secret is to have a layer that is thick enough to do this but not so thick that water can’t get through.
If you haven’t already fertilised your garden beds there is still time to do so before it gets too hot.
