Tip of the Week: Watering
Posted on April 18 2016
Hey there all of you Garden of Eden fans out there and welcome to our latest edition of “Tip of the Week,” where we provide all of you some tips and tricks to keep your indoor flowers and outdoor gardens looking spectacular all the year through! This week's tip will provide you with some advice for the most fundamental and arguably most important part of gardening: watering. For a gardener, watering is much more than filling up a can from a hose and dumping it on your plants. For a gardener who knows what he or she is doing, watering is knowing your plants inside and out, and knowing how much to water them without going overboard. The first step towards watering is to make sure that it is consistent, with enough water for the plant. Some flowers and plants need less water, like begonias, while others need to be watered more regularly, like hibiscus flowers. Do your homework, and see how much water your little friend needs to keep going strong! Adding on to that, newer plants will need to be watered more frequently, while older plants can wait a little longer, thanks to their already-developed root system. Not only that, but watering your plants in the early morning is the optimal time for them to get the most water into their system. This all may seem a bit complicated, but a simple planner is all you need to make sure you water your plants when it is the best time for them! That's it for our tip of the week. Be sure to make your way back next week for another gardening tip!
