The drought of 2022 had fairly an influence on our gardens. We might not have such extreme drought in 2023, however we’re coping with local weather change, and this typically means hotter and drier summers. The RHS did a survey to search out out which vegetation had suffered probably the most harm within the drought. Good to know what to not plant.
We can’t afford to make use of valuable sources watering thirsty vegetation. This makes drought-resistant vegetation invaluable.
Inevitably, some vegetation could have died in the course of the drought and it is necessary to switch them with extra resilient vegetation.
Attempting to drought proof the backyard is available in two levels.
First, the place vegetation have succumbed to the drought don’t exchange and keep away from the next which have been discovered by the RHS to have fared badly:- Hydrangea, Crocosmia, Acer, Fuchsia, Astilbe, Roses, Anemone, Ferns, Heuchera and Phlox

Second try Drought Resistant Vegetation for concepts on what to plant to outlive future droughts.
