This week, UK residents will find themselves in the midst of a heatwave. With strong sunshine and temperatures increasingly climbing as we go throughout the week. it’s a rare occasion for Brits to not carry an umbrella, with the weather not having reached highs for the past 3 years. In the past, hot air has risen, coming up from Africa to create such conditions. This time around, we can expect some parts to possibly touch 30°C and be hotter than the Sahara desert.
This is a cause for celebration and BBQs, but unfortunately for gardeners, this means their plants are at risk. With such weather comes extra care required to protect and help plants cope with the change in temperature. We really can’t stress enough how important it is to take measures to protect your plants from the heatwave. If the temperature outside is 28+°C then can you imagine what it would be inside your greenhouse?
