Work your Water Butt this winter

                                         How well do you work your butt?

Your water butt that is… A survey 3 years ago by the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust  found that nearly two thirds of gardeners said they had a water butt but only one in 10 make good use of them.

The snow and rain falling in the UK during March can provide a useful supply of water for warmer months when sometimes there is less rain falling – although not always as we saw last summer.

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.
