Is it hot enough out there for everyone? This heat is even unbearable for Landscapers – and we are used to being out there in all the elements. I thought this might be a good time to remind everyone that plants are like people – we need water when its hot and so do your plants.
New plants particularly need extra water in temperatures like these. They don’t have an established root system to draw water and need a little bit more attention. New plantings will tell you that they need water though by showing signs of wilting or drooping – not unlike humans in this weather either. So drink plenty of water during this hot summer season – and be sure to water your plants frequently.
