Your watering techniques may have to change in the not too distant future. Overhead watering and sprinklers may actually be banned in some areas and seasons. Flood irrigation (that’s what I call it when I forget to turn the hose off) could be another taboo.

These all tie in nicely to our other page on gardening through the heat – Gardening in the Heat which is full of tips and information to help you get your garden through Summer.
