August in the garden

Watering is the biggest task in August - if the weather gets hot! Vegetable gardens, flowering plants and the lawn all need about one inch of water per week to keep them looking nice. However, when it comes to our wonderful container gardens, please be careful not to overwater as the roots will drown. Just ensure that you check on them once or twice a day to see if the soil feels thirsty or the plants look limp. On particularly hot days you may like to move them out of direct sunlight. Push your finger in about an inch to make sure that there is adequate water there.
