The veggie garden is where loads of us are spending our time aren’t we.

What better place to get brilliant results from our efforts and reap the rewards. It’s also one place where plants really need your help.

Summer sun can wreak havoc with vegetables and herbs struggling to avoid wilting and scorching as soil temperatures rise the ground dries resulting in plant roots suffering from moisture and nutrient loss.

One thing we all know is veggies, like other plants need regular watering. Equally important is to make sure this water penetrates deeply, making the roots follow the water. The deeper they are the more insulated they will be.

Mulch is essential in stopping your this water evaporating away. 50 to 100mm of mulch will help keep valuable moisture around the plants.

What plants, especially newly planted seedlings need to reduce summer stress, is a slow and steady dose of nutrients to keep their energy levels up and organic based fertilizers are the way to go.
