WATER WATER WATER WATER
Gardening Rule No. 1
Successful plants that you see flourishing, have received the ideal conditions for their growing needs. Of course, just like people, plant needs vary. The basic components are light (sunlight or artificial light with the correct solar spectrum), water, temperature and nutrition. Depending on the type of plant, the quantity and ratio of each of these will vary.
However if there's one thing that ALL newly installed garden plants need, it's plenty of WATER. Establishing a robust root system right from the outset gives plants the best start in life. They achieve that by receiving the right amount of water so that their roots can spread out and absorb plenty of essential minerals from the soil. They can then shoot up top growth and gather sunlight to make energy, allowing them to mature and proliferate with gusto!
A general rule of thumb is that new plantings need 10 minutes of water from the hose on the “SHOWER” or “SOAKER” setting for every 30cm (12 inches) of height, every day for 2 weeks. After that once or twice weekly for the remainder of the summer.
I came across a very informative article on the subject of watering newly installed plants from the Dyck Arboretum called "Water Smart: Steps to establishing your new plants", which I have posted below.
