Can you believe that a hosepipe ban has been implemented by seven UK water companies during a week of forecasted downpours (and the occasional flurry of snow for those living up north)?

Graham also mentions the importance of sustainable planting. Waterwise Plants for Sustainable Gardens by Lauren Springer Ogden and Scott Ogden has 200 great ideas for drought-tolerant garden plants. Here are two of my favourites are Baptisia minor and Panicum virgatum. If you have a top-tip for waterwise gardening share it with us!
