Save Your Plants! Build Good Watering Habits Now
Don’t forget to water your plants! Proper watering of a newly installed plant is critical to its establishment and future growth. Long story short – never allow the soil around the roots of new plantings to be too dry (likewise, never too wet).
How Often to Water
Plant material must be watered thoroughly upon planting. Afterwards, watering will depend upon factors such as type weather conditions, soil type, and other factors.
Irrigation systems do not provide appropriate amounts of water at the required times for newly installed plants.
How to Water
It is most important to water your plants thoroughly after planting. This is best accomplished by setting your garden hose (nozzle removed) at the base of the plant and letting it slowly trickle to completely saturate the soil. Go inside. Have a cup of coffee. Come back out and move hose to next plant. Repeat.
