Money Saving Tips: Watering Plants
For those who love to garden and save money, here are some tips to use to get the best results in your garden and in your pocket book.
1. Water at night or in the morning before the sun comes up or after the sun goes down. This helps the vegetation to soak in the water before the sun can evaporate it.
2. Keep the soil from drying out. That’s a great rule of thumb for most plant watering. On inch of water per week is also a good gauge.
3. Water plants at the base. Plants take in water through their root system, so the closer you water to it, the more efficiently the plant will take in water with minimal evaporation.
