EXTRA PROTECTION FOR PLANTS
HORROR FORECAST If you know high temperatures or hot winds are due, give plants a once-over with a product that protects them from water loss, heat and sunburn, like Yates Waterwise Droughtshield.
WHEN YOU’RE AWAY If you don’t have automatic irrigation systems or great neighbours, watering the garden when you’re on hols can seem tricky. Push upturned bottles into the ground and fill with water – they will slowly empty and are great for your treasured plants. For indoor plants, there are blown glass versions that look like crystal bubbles. For trees, try a Greenwell – a recycled plastic product placed around the trunk to direct water to the root zone.
