Watering

(22 items)

Many people see watering as an easy gardening job. However, it can arguably require the most skill, with both timing and placement being crucial. An organic gardener will water when temperatures are cool, to maximise the amount of water the plant can use, and they’ll also water right to the base of the plant. Perhaps the most important thing to remember, however, is that when watering, you have fantastic access to your plants – so use the time to make your daily checks. Does it need feeding? Picking over? Is it being nibbled by pests?

In short, watering is a bonding exercise between the gardener and plant. Some other good watering tips include turning your roses upwards when watering with a watering can to avoid washing out the precious seedlings. Soaker hoses are great for large areas or borders and ensure the water will find the base. Reservoirs for baskets and pots can reduce watering, but you should still check the moisture content regularly, and the same goes for irrigation kits. Water butts are an important part of organic gardening, harnessing natures resources, and ensuring that the lifeblood of your plants is chemical free.
