However, according to a gardening expert, they don’t need to be removed if they start to look a bit worn.

Instead, gardener David Domoney appeared on ITV’s This Morning and revealed there is a very simple solution to reviving plants that have been damaged during the high temperatures.

“Well, if you’ve had a few plants that have suffered from the drought, don’t throw them away because they tend to recover easily,” he explained.

“You can tell if it’s dead or not by scraping off a bit of bark.”

Then he held up a hydrangea that appeared to be dehydrated, although it still had green leaves.

“The secret is you have to revive them right away, and that’s a process we use with the growing nurseries called ‘dunking,'” he said.

“Here you have a dry plant, you put it straight into a bucket of water, see the bubbles come out and wait for all the bubbles to go and then lift it out and the plant is properly hydrated.

“You leave that, make sure it doesn’t dry out and go back to normal.”

The Love Your Garden host also noted that a watering can is the most effective way to water plants.

“I usually take the rose off so I can pour straight into the pot,” he continued.

And according to the gardening guru, the best time to water plants during a heatwave is either first thing in the morning or around 7pm at night.

He also cautioned against taking good care of houseplants and advised buying capillary mats, which can help retain water.
