Waterlogged Garden?

February 1st, 2014

If your garden has been waterlogged or even flooded recently your plants will have been suffering.

First of all, the air will have been forced out of the soil and replaced with water.

This means that the plants roots will be struggling to breathe.

This can then lead to root death.

The good news is that the floods have happened during winter when the plants are asleep and so the roots are much less active, and can hold their breath a little longer.

When the flood waters have drained away, spiking the oil to let air in, and a spring dressing of a fertiliser like grow more will really help plants.

Many plant foods will have been washed away, and the fertiliser will also help the roots to grow and heal themselves.

If you are worried about your garden, then please just pop in and chat to us, we will be more than happy to offer advice and guidance on how to let your garden recover.
