Have your say
You can save water in the garden this spring with these simple tips.
Around 85,000 litres of water falls on your roof each year - install a water butt and collect rainwater for your plants.
It's free plus your plants prefer rainwater and you could save up to 1,000 litres a year too!
Hoses and sprinklers typically use about 1,000 litres of water an hour.
Instead fill a watering can and water your garden in the evening or early morning when less is lost to evaporation.
When you are buying new plants look for drought tolerant ones that require less watering.
For example, a convolvulus with small, silvery leaves or a strong-scented lavender with blue flowers.
