Action ideas Edit

Water efficiency for UK gardeners Edit

  • Use water butts and watering cans
  • Avoid cutting lawns too short
  • Check outdoor taps, pipes and plumbing fixtures for leaks
  • Water the roots and soil around plants rather than spraying leaves and flowers
  • Use mulch on garden, for example from a compost heap
  • Choose drought resistant bedding and perennial plants like marigolds, petunias or geraniums.
  • Think about trees that will thrive in Britain’s future climate. Silver maple and black cherry trees thrive in warmth. Sycamore, yew and magnolia are resistant to storm damage.
