 Do hydrate plants first thing in the morning

Watering outdoor flowers and vegetables is most efficient before the heat of the day, when the soil is cool and the water has the highest chance of reaching the plants’ roots before evaporating. Watering plants early in the day ensures that they have enough moisture stored beneath the soil to withstand the heat of a hot summer day.

 Do not water too often or too little

It may be tempting, especially during hot weather, to water just enough and frequently enough to keep the soil damp. Shallow surface watering, hinders the formation of deep roots. Rather, use a less frequent watering schedule that thoroughly saturates the soil. You can buy Plants online.

This strategy encourages roots to seek deep for remaining water even when the soil’s surface appears dry. The general rule of thumb is to give your flowers and veggies 1 inch of water per week and as much as double that amount in the peak of summer.

Water plants at the soil level

Watering your plants from the ground gives moisture to the roots, where it is most required. Consider weaving a soaker hose between plants in a flower or vegetable bed to slowly and deeply saturate the soil and promote healthy growth.
