Don’t forget about containers
Soil in container gardens and flowerpots dries out much more quickly than soil in flowerbeds or garden plots.
The smaller the container, the more frequently you need to water.
Soak the soil in containers in the morning, and, if it’s an especially hot day, soak them again in the afternoon.
If you’re not home or going on holiday, you can insert an automatic plant waterer that features a hollow spike and attaches to a standard plastic water bottle.
When the spike is inserted into the pot, water slowly seeps into the soil and trickles water into the plant at a steady pace.
