Watering with limited supplies

Posted on 5 May 2017
Watering with limited supplies
When water supplies are limited because of water restrictions or lack of a mains supply, you can still have a kitchen garden. Here are some ways to achieve this:
  • Harvest as much water as possible from land and roof spaces and use grey water in accordance with health guidelines.
  • Micro irrigation is the most efficient method of watering.
  • Water at critical periods at establishment and in the last few weeks before harvest.
  • Sow and plant during cooler, wetter periods and avoid the height of summer.
  • Grow productive crops such as tomatoes, beans, carrots and cucumbers, and in the cooler, wetter time of year grow crops such as brassicas, peas and broad beans.
