Having good watering habits is a key part to growing a thriving plant. When it is hot out, by all means your basket or pot might need watered twice in a day; however just because it is summer doesn’t mean it will need that everyday!

On days that are overcast or slightly cooler then your typical summer day check your plants before watering, look for weight and moisture in the soil. By giving your plant a drink when it isn’t needed you can actually cause more damage.

Also remember to water the soil not the foliage- the leaves aren’t whats thirsty, it’s the roots!
