Water smart gardening in summer

Watering the garden bed with hose

Water is critical to a thriving garden but as our climate becomes hotter and drier, gardeners will need to be more mindful about water usage. In this online session, you’ll learn the ins and outs of using water wisely in the garden with Richard Rowe from Sustainable Gardening Australia. Learn how to design a water smart garden: which species to plant and  the crucial role of mulch. Learn how irrigation, rainwater tanks and grey water systems will help you to save water and keep your garden happy.
