How often should I water my plants?
During the growing season which runs from September through to May there is a weekly watering limit of just twice a week. For established plants this will be more than adequate, for younger plants you will need other measures in place to ensure survival. Soil improvement is the biggest must before any planting takes place, if you get this right your plants will grow through the summer months no trouble at all. In addition, hand watering through the hotter months in late evening will be most effective, especially for annual plants, vegetables and herbs. Avoiding adding too much feed over the summer months, lots of new, soft growth will increase water uptake and increase stress to your plants.
