Mother Nature hasn’t been the best at gracing our gardens with water this summer, which leaves most gardeners with all sorts of questions. When should I water? How much should I water? How can I conserve water? We thought this would be the perfect time to give you some tips on watering as well as some other gardening basics.
#1 – Water Early
#2 – Avoid Watering the Leaves
#3 – Make Sure Your Plants Need the Water
#4 – Conserve Water Through Proper Mulching
We also wanted to remind you to wait until the end of the day to spray repellant, insecticides, etc. That way the temperature will be below 85°F and the bees will not be around. This applies to both synthetic and organic sprays.
Another reminder is that vinegar is NOT an insecticide, it is an herbicide. It does not discriminate and will kill everything, so please use it with caution if you are using it as part of a solution as a weed killer!
We hope you are enjoying your summer so far and your gardens are thriving!
