In order to ensure a successful harvest and growth in the home garden, especially in summer, we must not forget about watering and watering, as this is the only way the plants will develop a full fruit and achieve successful growth. However, many are wondering when to water and how much to water in order to save as much as possible on the one hand and to have the best possible yield on the other hand. And although each plant has its own care requirements, it’s good to know a few general rules and tips to help keep the crop exactly the way you want it.

When to water

Garden experts advise watering the plants in the early morning hours. At that time, the soil is still suitably cold and water seeps through the soil more easily. During the day, the soil warms up, and evening watering with cold water first causes a shock to the plant and even faster evaporation of water. By watering in the morning, we allow the plants enough time to absorb the water, the water also flows into the deeper layers of the soil. Therefore, it is also recommended to water the plants only once a day, in larger quantities, instead of several times in smaller doses.

When have we watered enough

As mentioned, watering should be thorough and long lasting, only then will the soil get enough water. If the soil is very dry, water longer, and vice versa. If you don’t know if you’ve watered enough, check with a simple test. First, water the beam thoroughly, then dig a hole at the site of watering, about 25 inches deep; if the soil is moist to this depth, watering is thorough, otherwise you have watered too little; but if it is wet and sticky, you have watered too much. Water the plants planted in pots so that water flows through the opening in the bottom.
