Time to take watering seriously. Deep hand watering is time consuming but it’s more effective and economical than using a spray nozzle or sprinkler. Do it early morning or evening.
Mulch wherever possible. It’ll help to keep the garden moist when you’re busy over Christmas.
Plant geraniums in a sunny, dry spot, and fuchsias in semishaded areas in the garden.
Also plant out capsicums and celery, and get into a planting routine with salad greens and lettuce.
