Most of us are enjoying this hot weather, but while the dry spell continues, spare a thought for our garden visitors.

Recycle those horrid plastic food trays by filling them with water and placing all around your gardens in, under, and on top of things.

Also,  let the washing up water cool and use it to water plants. The soap in the water actually helps get the water through the soil. — Anni Keene, Whitfield Street, Newark.
