August 2020

This is the most difficult time of year to keep plants thriving and looking good. Whether you garden in a large space with some trees for shelter, or perhaps on a veranda, it sometimes difficult to give your treasures some reprieve from the relentless sun. There is a Cypriot saying which says that the weather will start to cool down after Maria’s Assumption mid-month, but it may be only a few degrees and your garden will still need watering, so check that all your watering outlets are free from any dirt or chalk deposits.
