Watering Borders and Beds

Watering Borders and Beds

Watering your borders and plant beds can be a chore, but with a few simple tips and some great Hozelock products it can be completed quickly and easily.

When watering your plants make sure you don’t just wet the surface as this does not allow the plant to fully establish.  The best advice is to give plants a thorough watering to allow the water to sink below ground level and establish longer, fuller roots.  This also means you don’t have to water as regularly.

Applying a mulch of organic matter over soil will not only supply your crops and plants with additional nutrients to thrive, it will also aid in reducing waste from surface evaporation thus helping water retention. Additionally, using Water Storing Gel will help in retaining water around deep roots meaning less time and money in watering your precious plants.
