When it rains, your garden looks gorgeous.   And you know your plants are happy.   What about when it doesn’t rain?   How much water should you give your plants and garden?

If you live in an area where the ground will freeze in the winter, give your plants solid water this late summer and early fall.   That means, water about once a week with two inches of water.   This will help the roots grow stronger.

Think about the type of soil and plants you have in your garden.   They can slightly alter how much water your garden needs.   In general, when fall comes around, water your garden every two to four weeks to keep your plants healthy and strong.
