How to care for your new garden

Here are some tips for caring for your newly installed garden:

  • water in the early morning when the sun in less hot and the water loss through evaporation is less.
  • Avoid watering at night.  Water sitting on plants for hours promotes fungal diseases.  When you water in the morning, the sun will dry the leaves.
  • Plants  need approximately one inch of water per week.  The soil should feel lightly moist.
