Hor­ti­cul­tural aide mem­oire Wa­ter thought­fully

Country Life Every Week - - IN THE GARDEN -

Wa­ter is by no means an un­lim­ited re­source, so it makes sense for the gar­dener to con­sider where best it should be ap­plied. It’s wise to wa­ter veg­eta­bles in full growth dur­ing dry spells; it is sel­dom jus­ti­fi­able to wa­ter lawns, which will re­cover when it next rains. It’s wise to wa­ter camel­lias in pots to plump up their flower buds for next spring; it’s ne­c­es­sary to wa­ter hang­ing bas­kets and mangers fre­quently or they’ll turn to hay. A herba­ceous bor­der need not be wa­tered, but a newly planted shrub should re­ceive a can­ful a week.
