The summer has finally arrived and we can’t wait to see what’s in store!

One thing we have heard is that this summer, is set to be hotter than last years, according to the Met Office☀️

Did you know that the meteorological calendar for summer covers the duration of June, July and August, or by the astronomical calendar it begins on the 21st June, a day referred to as the summer solstice. The summer solstice marks the point when the Sun reaches its highest point in the sky.

Now is a good time to think about looking after yourself when you’re out in the heat in the garden.

Our top tips for keeping cool in the garden are:

✨Try and do your gardening in the early morning or late evening to avoid the hottest part of the day

👒 Always wear a wide brimmed summer hat to keep the sun off your head and face.

🚰 Have a bottle of cold water in an insulated bottle or keep your bottle in the shade.

⛱ Put all your tools in the shade when not using them.

Now sit back and relax and let Oakley Turf Farm do the hard work for you this summer!
