The drought of 2022 had fairly an influence on our gardens. We could not have such extreme drought in 2023, however we’re coping with local weather change, and this usually means hotter and drier summers. The RHS did a survey to search out out which vegetation had suffered probably the most injury within the drought. Good to know what to not plant.
We can’t afford to make use of treasured assets watering thirsty vegetation. This makes drought-resistant vegetation invaluable.
Inevitably, some vegetation could have died throughout the drought and it is necessary to interchange them with extra resilient vegetation.
Making an attempt to drought proof the backyard is available in two phases.
First, the place vegetation have succumbed to the drought don’t substitute and keep away from the next which had been discovered by the RHS to have fared badly:- Hydrangea, Crocosmia, Acer, Fuchsia, Astilbe, Roses, Anemone, Ferns, Heuchera and Phlox

Second take a look at Drought Resistant Vegetation for concepts on what to plant to outlive future droughts.
