The heat is on! When the mercury rises here in Charleston, most of us head indoors. But what about your flower beds baking in the hot sun and humidity all day? Even if you’ve planted native flowers and shrubs that can better tolerate the hot days, they still need extra attention during this warm season.
To keep the plants in your Charleston landscape perky and pretty, follow these summer watering tips:
Lastly, know your plants. Work with your Charleston landscape designer to select heat tolerant plants and then understand their watering needs. Some plants need more watering while others prefer to dry out before a thorough soaking. If you’ve added herbs or vegetables to your garden, those will require lots of sunshine – and a regular watering schedule.
Understand what’s in your garden and flower beds so you can keep those plants alive all summer long and looking lush even when you’re wilting.
