Welcome to our July Newsletter

After such a nice June, we've had a real mixed bag of weather so far this month. But while there have been summer showers, the garden can quickly get dehydrated. 

In this edition, our Gardening Expert gives advice on keeping your garden hydrated. We also share some Ask the Expert questions and a Q&A on Japanese knotweed. And we've got a chance for our Growise fans to enter a competition to win tickets for Ed Sheeran at Croke Park (competition closes at midnight Thursday 16 July)!

We hope you continue to Grow With Us during the next few months and please share your experiences on our Facebook and Twitter pages, we love hearing from you!
