  • The best time to water flowers is in the morning between the hours of 6-10 a.m. The cooler temperature reduces evaporation and helps the water stay where you need it – with the plant. Spreading mulch around can also help keep the soil moist.
  • Placing a rain gauge in your garden will help keep track of how much water the garden is getting each week.
