Water it!

· Posted in

March is up to her usual tricks this year. She’s come in like a lamb and will probably go out like a lion! With temperatures predicted to be in the 60s and 70s this week---and no wind, yea!---it’s the perfect opportunity to give your trees, shrubs and garden a good soak. One to 1.5 inches of water would be ideal.

If you have new plantings, things that have been put in in the last year or two, remember to water them right at the base of the plant. It takes a long time for plants to establish roots beyond the initial rootball, and water doesn’t move from the “native” garden soil into commercial potting medium very well.

Otherwise, enjoy the sunny warmth of this false spring and hope for some nice, soggy snow!
