Most of us are suffering from this prolonged hot and dry spell so spare a thought for the young trees our Council have planted. We have noticed a few saplings with leaves turning brown through dehydration.
The Council does have a contractor to look after watering but as you can imagine they are quite stretched at the moment.
Can we appeal to those green-fingered residents who happen to have a young tree outside of their property to ” adopt” this tree and help to keep it alive during dry weather. Most of these have a green hydration bag attached. If you could give these a couple of watering cans of buckets of water every few days it would be a great help.
