While there isn't any substantial rain in sight yet, things are still growing!
Mulch is a great way to help your plants make the most of the water you give them, as it prevents some of the evaporation. Autumn is the perfect time for mulching as there are plenty leaves available! Rather than throw them out, layer them into your compost, use them on top of your garden beds or in your pots.
