Practical ways to help gardens cope with changing climate.

The increasing trend of dry winters followed by hotter, drier summers are leading to water shortages in the garden and many areas are currently experiencing hose pipe bans. In preparation, there are some simple things that can be done to make best use of the scarce water resource and still enjoy the peace and tranquillity that a well kept, thriving garden brings.

Consider the aspect of a garden
If a garden is in full sun for most of the day, or a particularly windy site it may be time to revisit the planting scheme to check its resistance to drought and perhaps make some changes to ensure the right plants are chosen to thrive in the future. Many grey or silver leaved plants and succulent species are cleverly adapted to be drought tolerant, such as lavenders, olive trees, sempervivums and sedums. This gradual change in climate has made available more semi-tropical and Mediterranean plants that previously wouldn't have survived in the UK’s climate. New plantings will need to be well watered until established, when their drought tolerance kicks in. Hedging is also useful for reducing the drying effects of wind.

Improve a garden’s soil
Sandy soils will drain too quickly and lose essential nutrients so add masses of organic matter such as mushroom compost and composted bark to improve its structure and water holding capacity. Clay soils can become baked hard in summer making it near impossible for plants to extract the water. Improve clay soil now by digging in organic compost and about an inch layer of horticultural grit or river washed sand.

Improve garden Irrigation
Overhead watering with sprinklers and hoses is very wasteful, and often doesn't reach the roots of the plants where it is needed. The most practical and economical irrigation system to install is a simple drip line or 'leaky pipe'. It can be woven through flower beds, with 'branches' to reach every plant, delivering the same water pressure at the beginning and the end of the line. It can even be extended to patio pots.
