TIPS FOR WATERING YOUR PLANTS
Always make sure the water is getting
to where it is needed - the base and
root system of the plant, otherwise it
is wasted.
Water early in the morning.
Veggies need watering every day,
especially in the hotter months if it
doesn’t rain.
If the plants have drooping leaves it
means they are thirsty.
Fruit trees will only need watering
every second or third day. This helps
good deep root growth.
If you have an automatic watering
system check it at least twice a week
to make sure it is working properly.
Plants should not be too wet and not
too dry.
To make sure the soil is wet, stick your
finger into the soil and it should feel
damp all the way through.
