Signs of life after the drought

The temperatures after the long summer drought are starting to cool. Although rain water, vital for the revival of the parched grass, plants and trees, is still in short supply.

Some crops and plants have continued to grow thanks to a small, but dedicated, volunteer watering team.

Although many plants and trees may look dead, experts on Gardeners’ Question Time this week explained that early falling leaves and dried up foliage is nature’s survival instinct. Life will return in Spring.

Seeds will soon be ready to collect and store for next year.

If you can help, even in a small way, you will be contributing the revival of a well-loved community space.
