How to water plants in the heat

First of all, it is necessary to water those plants that are most affected by heat and drought. This can be attributed to plants with obvious signs of dehydration, such as flaccid stems, leaves and buds, as well as growing in small containers, such as containers, pots. First of all, watering is also needed by newly planted seedlings, as it is most vulnerable to adverse conditions.

Abundant watering is necessary and the lawn, since without it it it will lose its attractive appearance. In addition, it should be remembered that in greenhouses and lounges the temperature is much higher than that which is set in the fresh air. Therefore, plants that grow in greenhouse conditions should be watered more often and plentifully, and also regularly ventilated.

Watering is better exercised in the evening, shortly before sunset. Then the moisture will soak well into the ground. If watered in the morning or afternoon, a lot of water will evaporate, having not reached the roots of plants. In addition, after drying the topsoil, a surface crust is formed with cracks that play the role of capillaries, due to which the deeper layers quickly dry. There will be a little bit of watering.

For greater efficiency of watering and maintaining moisture, it is possible to resort to such techniques. First, to water the plants not by the way of rain, but by digging holes along the mud or trunking ring grooves (around fruit trees, for example). Secondly, in order to slow the evaporation of water and prevent the formation of crust with cracks, after watering the hole should be covered with loose ground, peat, straw, beveled grass. By observing these simple rules, you will be able to save your plants from dehydration even in intense and prolonged heat.
