- Make anything planted this year a priority- whether it’s an annual, perennial, shrub or tree. We love the analogy that new plants should be treated like intensive care patients and checked daily for hydration.
- Don’t use wilting as your reminder that a plant needs water. Be ahead of the game and water before a plant “flags”. We recommend imagining that the plant is still above ground in its original container. Visual how much water you would have to apply for the water to be coming through the drainage holes in the container or out of the bottom of the burlap on a balled & bur lapped plant. Once you’ve watered the entire ball from top to bottom, and side to side, you’re finished for the day.
