Watering your plot

Ground water levels are low. I got a leaflet from the Affinity Water company yesterday about the rainfall over the winter being too low to fully replenish the groundwater resources.

Here is a quote from the leaflet:

“Hang up your hose: A garden hose uses as much water in an hour as the average family of 4 uses in a day and a half – try to use a watering can instead.”

So, remember to stick to the allotment rules:

  • No sprinklers allowed
  • Hose to be held during watering (not left on ground in the strawberry patch with tap turned on while you get on with a bit of weeding round the peas )
  • Choose the watering can over the hose whenever you can

The Stockingstone Road Allotment Association was formed in 2015 but the site itself has been a part of the local community for many years and plays an important part in enhancing and protecting this urban green space.
