WATERING & HEALTH ADVICE
At least a WEEKLY watering.
if it RAINS good, DON’T water.
Half-inch+ counts as watering.
Shorter rainfalls miss roots.

Weekly is good, EXCEPT:
SUNNY, DRY
 location? or
OVER 90 degrees out?
Apply more water, more often.

UNDER 60 degrees out?
Apply LESS water, LESS often.

When do I reduce watering?
Reduce by HALF each year.
want faster growth? ignore this

Hand watering with water hose:
– 30 seconds to 3 minutes, varying by plant size.
– Fill tree-ring area gently.
– Use wide-mouth soaker nozzle.
– LOW pressure if open end hose.

Avoid overwatering!
Plants getting watered too often, and for weeks on end, may suffer root rot.
Over-watered plants can look like under-watered plants. Wilting or color change can occur either way. If watering has failed, go dry a few weeks. It may pick up.

New plantings may shed leaves.
Going from the care of a nursery to an exposed planting (more sun), plants may go into ‘shock’. Usually temporary; maintain water and wait for the plant to get comfortable. Often it will re-leaf, even late in season.

Problems may not be watering-related.
Disease, fungus, or insects may visit upon your plants anytime, anywhere.
Try a formula from your local home store, like, Bio-Advanced 3-in-1 Insect, Disease & Mite Control. Spray on foliage as needed ~ or to prevent.

Plant grew so fast, it is leaning!
Foliage often outgrows stem.
Give that plant a solid haircut.
Shear 1/3 to 1/2 off.
More off the heavy side.
It will straighten a bit.
It will be stronger.
It will regain old size fast.
