Rain needed for gardens






With the current drought seriously affecting UK gardens any drop of rain is like liquid gold.

  • Rainwater harvesting in the UK has increased by approximately 300% in the last two years
  • Rainharvesting can replace up to 50% of a household mains water consumption, and up to 85% on commercial installations
  • Collecting rain from your roof reduces surface water by approximately 60% per plot
  • Rainwater harvesting in Germany is over 100 times the current use in the UK
  • The payback period can be as quick as 3 years on buildings with large roofs and a high non-potable water demand

I am not an experienced gardener - more of an enthusiastic amateur who learns by trial and error and is keen to "manage" the effects of the weather on my garden. Writing this blog is my passion and I hope that it will continue to grow, allowing global gardeners to communicate about the effects of climate change on our plants and the future of our gardens.
