Tip of the Week – Water Your Garden In The Morning

By | June 1, 2009

watergardensThe best time to water your garden is usually in the morning to maximize the efficiency of water used. This is because mornings tend to be cool, without strong winds, so the amount of water lost to evaporation is much less, than it would be during the day when it is hotter. What about the evening your say? Well, the evening is typically cooler like the morning, but plants then can stay damp over night and are more likely to be damaged by fungal and bacterial diseases.

    Watering in the morning is good advice. I always try to get out first thing and put water on the fruits and vegetables we have in our garden. The plants seem to respond well to this routine.
