Hi, I’m in Sydney and it’s really hot here at the moment, and it’s expected to get 40+ degrees most of January. Do you have any advice for keeping my snow pea plants alive? My concerns include scorched leaves, wilting, drought. Also, I use sugar cane mulch to cover to soil. Do you suggest something else or is sugar cane mulch alright. Please reply soon. Thanks.
