10 Things to do in the Garden on a Rainy Day

Our favourite gardening tips for a rainy day...

Uproot hardy weeds like dandelions whilst the soil is wet. It’s much easier.

Help water logged potted plants to dry off by removing trays from under them, and placing them somewhere out of the rain to drain off.

Cover delicate or young plants with cloches, or move them to shelter if they’re in a pot.

Collect rainwater in bottles, buckets, or watering cans to feed to your houseplants; or pop them all outside for a quick drink when the rain is gentler.

Go on slug and snail patrol! You can pick them off by hand, or lay down deterrents such as coffee grounds or crushed eggshells.

Turn the compost heap. Mix up the wet and dry layers.

Collect and dry off any seeds you want to save for next year.

Clean and tidy the shed, green house, or garage. Also take this time to clean any garden tools and empty pots.

Start planning next year’s garden. Think about ordering seeds and bulbs now.

Really don’t want to go outside? Watch YouTube videos on gardening, read gardening books or magazines, or go for a wander round your local garden centre.
