How to Properly Water Your Plants
Just as too much water is bed for us, the same is true for our plants.
There is no hard and fast rule when its comes to watering plants. There are a lot of variable, type of plant, soil, weather, time of year.
Watering slowly is the most effective, watering too quickly or too much all at once leaves the roots at the core of the plant dry. The key is to ensure the water gets to the roots.
Check the soil with our finger, focus on the root zone, it’s the roots that need the water, not the leaves. Be sure to water only when needed. Too little water is as damaging as too much water.
Using mulch helps reduce run off and slows evaporation. By keeping the ground temperature down, you reduce the amount of water needed for the plants.
