Watering your allotment plot

June 26th, 2007 by Karsten

In the next few days we’re going to look at the subject of watering an allotment plot. At the time of writing these articles this could seem like a bit of a joke, since it’s raining quite a bit, and has been on and off for about 2 weeks.

Never the less - things can change quickly - and the months of July and August can turn quite warm and sunny. When they do, it brings to the surface a few issues for gardeners in general, and allotmenteers in particular.

We’re going to be looking at the following issues:

  • Drought and hosepipe bans
  • Recycling water
  • Using water wisely

There’s a lot of things that can be done, now and in coming seasons, to ensure that you can maintain a good plot that will continue to give you lots of pleasure and good yields of crops.

I hope you’ll enjoy the series - find inspiration - and tips on how to make the most of your plot, drought or not.
