Gardening can be expensive, so ALAN TITCHMARSH offers money-saving advice

In other words, a lot of dull, cool days and a certain amount of rain (which suits most veg and hardy annuals).

But let’s not forget the water butts.

Not only are they real money savers for people with meters, they’re also valuable if there’s a dry spell just as soft fruit is swelling, the salad bed is full to bursting or patio containers are in full flower. 

Rainwater is always handy for watering pots of lime-hating plants, such as blueberries, citrus plants and a fair few conservatory exotics. It’s also worth using for orchids and houseplants that don’t like the chalk or the chlorine in tap water.
