Planting Time is Watering Time

Waterwise gardening saves time and money as well as water. Even better, weeds are fewer and your flowers, veges and fruit trees more healthy and resilient.

Here are a couple of water wise tips for spring planting:

  • Plant all the thirsty plants (lettuce, spinach) together, so they can be watered as a group.  
  • Plant garden beds densely rather than just dotting a few plants around. This strategy reduces water loss from bare soil.
  • The best time to water is before you plant. Pre soak each plant in a bucket of water, until the potting mix stops bubbling.
