Gardeners first line of defence against this should be to use a layer of mulch around plants to help the soil stay moist after watering. 

There are many different mulch materials gardeners can use during a heatwave – dry grass clippings from your lawn are a great option. 

Add compost to your plants 

To increase the soil’s capacity to hold water, compost is also a great addition to your plants and pots.

Jack explained: “Not only is this a good way to prepare for a drought but It can also protect your garden against heavy downpours. 

“Although these are usually rare in summer, climate watchers predict a few bad storms, so compost is the best solution to protect your plans from these two extremes.”
