How often should I water my flowers?
Watering the flowers is a double-edged sword. Omission in watering stops the blooming of your flowers, causes wilting, and makes a dead-looking garden. On the other hand, excessive watering causes plant diseases and drowning. What should we do, you may ask. Moderation and knowledge are the keys!
First of all, it’s necessary to have enough information about the different kinds of seeds and flowers that you have already planted or are planning to grow. If there is a unique flower in your garden that requires special care, make sure you have all the available data. Typically, a flower garden needs 1 inch of water weekly. Rainfall counts too.
Another determinant factor in watering is the soil material in your garden. This time take a look at the soil of your garden with more accuracy to see whether it’s coarse-grained and fast-draining or heavy and clay soil. If the soil is fast draining, divide the 1 inch of water into two different sessions each week. Otherwise, watering 1 inch per week in one session would be sufficient.
