- Water at the base of the plant and in the early morning or early evening.
- Recommendations: avoid watering straight overhead or in full sun.
- Check with an index finger through the mulch and 1”-3″ into the soil to determine if the soil is moist.
- Dry: see recommendation #4
- Moist: check again in 2-3 days depending on the weather conditions
- Before the ground freezes (December/January) the plants needed to be watered once per week if there is no soaking rain. It is critical to keep roots moist prior to the ground freezing.
- Watering To Keep Moist:
- Water until the ground stops accepting water around the plant.
- Consistent ‘soggy’ soil can promote root rot. Keep the plants ‘moist’ not ‘soggy.’
