TAKE 3: Wet Weather Gardening Activities To Make A Difference

Rainy days were created so gardeners could get some housework done. But, what if you don't want to do the ironing right now and your rain dance to the weather gods didn't work? Well, there are still many ways you can be a productive gardener when the skies have opened up and the cat is sat in the corner still shivering. 

Here, we will discuss wet weather gardening activities to make a difference when you can’t get out and do what you had planned. You’ll be surprised at how many activities are readily available for gardeners to remain productive during wet days.

You can improve your organisation, attend to smaller tasks you’ve been putting off for weeks, get creative, start being more methodical with your garden by monitoring and creating plans, or just improve your own gardening knowledge with some relaxing downtime. Want to know more – read on!

Step 1: Head to the Shed

There is one place you can certainly seek shelter as the rain starts to pour – the shed. The shed is a fantastic place to get some gardening-related tasks done that you would usually be neglected for “a rainy day”. Well, that day has come!

In the shed, you can clean your tools and equipment and do some general maintenance work to your machinery. You can also do a stock inventory and check you have enough plant pots, labels, fuel for the lawnmower and many other things for the coming weeks.

This will help you avoid getting caught out in the middle of a warmer day and having to interrupt urgent gardening tasks with a trip to town.

If you’re like most gardeners, you’ll be the owner of an unorganised and cluttered shed full of supplies and tools. We understand it’s your organised mess, but to make things easier, you can now create some order. Having an orderly shed makes finding things much easier and it's also much safer.

You could also improve your own gardening skills by subscribing to a gardening blog, watching gardening TV shows for tips, or do something creative and start your own gardening blog to document your findings and solutions

Step 2: Garden from Inside

There are lots of gardening tasks you can complete without even setting foot outdoors. From the toasty comfort of your insulated home, you can do some indoor gardening. There are many different plants that live inside which you can attend to. If you hadn’t considered it already, how about making a plant shelf? There are many benefits from owning indoor plants.

Another useful task you can do from a window or conservatory with a good view of your garden is to assess your garden. Take a notepad and analyse things such as the layout of your garden. Are any plants in danger? Do you need to relocate some to accommodate shade or sunlight (not today!)? Are any pathways, furniture or fixings damaged? Is the drainage system working? – a good day to check!

Other useful activities you can do to improve your garden include starting a gardening journal to help monitor your plants and vegetables.

You could also improve your own gardening skills by subscribing to a gardening blog, watching gardening TV shows for tips, or do something creative and start your own gardening blog to document your findings and solutions.
