June’s Tips to Potted Garden Success
May 27, 2016
The Heat is Here! This time of year especially, it is important to take great care to make sure your plants are getting enough water until the monsoon arrives. Don’t forget to make sure you stay hydrated too!
Water is the main topic in our desert summers. Your potted gardens, planted with flowers or perennials need daily watering as the roots are in the top six inches of the soil. Your shrubs and trees in containers will most likely need a deep soaking twice a week.
Potted cactus and succulents need water usually once every two weeks in the summer. Think about what kind of plant you have in a pot, where the root system is and water accordingly.
Want to have a mosquito –free summer? Check to make sure that you have no standing water in any of your garden or potted areas.
