How To Keep Plants Watered When Dry
|Gardening : Gardens|
During dry, warm weather - for instance Summer - it can be hard to keep plants wet and with the moisture they need without wasting too much water.
Therefore there are some simple tips.
The first is to water if you use water at the right time of day - in the evening. During the day it is too warm and the water will simply evaporate rather than actually feed the plant.
Also use water slices, which are simple sponges that are soaked in water, put under the plant, then slow release their water over the period of a week or so.
This is a very efficient way of watering plants, means they require less attention, and just as importantly it uses a lot less water than frequent watering daily whereby most of the water is lost outside the plant root system anyway.
