Watering your Containers

When watering your containers and hanging baskets, you should water until the basket feels heavy with water weight and water runs from the drainage holes.  If the water comes out right away, your basket is very dry and the soil has pulled away from the sides of the pot, because of stress, and created a tunnel where the water runs through immediately.  If this happens, water well and the return to water again in 10 minutes.  In the time you wait the soil will expand and be able to absorb the water, feeding the roots.

Enjoy this beautiful weather!
