Lack of water is not something I usually have to worry about in the UK as it is famous for rain! However last year we had a drought with no rain for 6 weeks over the summer and this spring it has been unusually dry too. I am sometimes away from home and it is really disheartening to come back to shriveled plants. What things could I try this year if we have another dry summer? I mostly grow in containers at the moment but hope to make some vegetable beds soon too.
Here is the lovely salad trough my dad made for me from old pallets! I need to replace the salad soon though as they are starting to flower and taste too bitter.
