Water at the base of plant and in 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 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 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.’
