The Importance of Watering
April 12, 2012

We often talk about the importance of watering for plant health, especially with newly planted trees and shrubs. But, it is a rare spring when we feel the need to remind you to pay close attention even to existing landscape plantings.

Very little precipitation has occurred since mid fall and we have had even less moisture since the beginning of the year when January and February temperatures soared into the sixties. Our ground is dry, really dry and the mild weather accompanied by strong winds is making it all the worse. You may have noticed the forecasts including a threat of fire because of excessively dry weather. Please pay attention to the warnings!

You cannot change the weather, but you can and should water even established plants in order to provide adequate water for flowering and new foliage growth. Get out those hoses, sprinklers, and watering cans and be prepared to give your plants what they need to begin a healthy season. Pay particular attention to anything you planted last year and the new things you added to your garden recently. Stop by Waterloo Gardens for everything you need for a beautiful landscape!
