Here are some watering tips for your garden!

Depending upon how much rain we get, we do recommend that you water 2 to 3 times per week.  The soil shouldn't have too much moisture because you could potentially rot the root system of the plants.  A good way to check to see how much moisture is in the soil is by sticking your finger a few centimetres into the soil (not your hand!).  If your finger comes way damp, leave the soil be and if it comes away dry, then water.  Just don't sprinkle your garden with water but soak it.  By soaking it you stimulate deeper root growth.  We recommend watering at night.  Remember that transplants and seeds require more attention to how much water compared to mature plants. 

Happy Gardening!
