You just planted your new garden bed and it looks lovely. Being attentive to your new plants is important to help keep them looking that way. Proper planting is foremost, as is proper watering. You will want to follow a watering schedule for the first year of planting to help the plant get established. After that, less maintenance is required (but it always pays off to notice what your plants need!). Our recommendations for watering throughout the year are as follows:
Recommended Watering Schedule
For the first year, we recommend different watering schedules for certain seasons:
SPRING (approximately April 1 – May 31) 2 times per week for 30–40 minutes
SUMMER (approximately June 1 – August 31) 3 times per week for 30–40 minutes
FALL (approximately September 1 – November 30) 2 times per week for 30–40 minutes
WINTER (approximately December 1 – March 31) as needed during warm dry spells
Reduce amounts of watering by one day for each signifcant natural rainfall that we receive. If you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 800-422-6008.
