Heatwave to sizzle gardens

This week's heatwave will be the last straw for many of the state's gardens which will wither and die without moisture and shade, gardening experts warn. Adelaide is forecast to experience seven days in a row of 35C or above temperatures. Two years of below average rainfall had caused low levels of moisture in soils which stressed plants. It is THE FIRST TIME IN 68 YEARS THAT SEVEN DAYS OF 35C TEMPERATURE OR ABOVE IN MARCH could be experienced. It would also only be the third time in history, the first time in 1934 and the second in 1940. "It is not unusual for Adelaide to experience hot days in isolation in March, but to get seven in a row is. Air from the north-east is continuously travelling down over South Australia which is causing the major heatwave."
