And remember...

Heavy rain (or over-watering) can carry excess fertiliser and pesticides from your garden into the ground water, local streams, ponds and rivers where they can cause serious pollution. Avoiding over-watering keeps valuable nutrients in the root zone and reduces the need for extra feeding – yet another reason to ditch the hosepipe and go chemical-free!
