Watering

 The best time for watering is in the morning or late in the day, to avoid evaporation. A layer of cedar mulch or bark can help to slow evaporation and keep the soil surface sufficiently moist for longer.

Water deep, less often: 1 to 2 inches of water with each watering for best results!

Before watering, make sure that the soil around your plants is not too wet by pushing your finger a few centimetres into the ground.

Watering quickly and only a little will not be sufficient to moisten the soil all day long. Make sure that the plants are well watered so that they develop a good network of deep roots. In general, watering every 2 to 3 days should be sufficient. During dry periods, increase the frequency of watering, especially for your precious fruits and vegetables.

Try not to water the plant foliage, as this can increase the risk of diseases. Instead, water the base of the plant just at ground level.

If you have to go away for a period of time, ask someone to water your plants for you. Remove dried flowers to reduce the water needed to produce seeds.

TIP: Be sure to rid your garden of all weeds, because their roots can deprive other plants of much of the soil moisture.
