[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”18836″ img_size=”full”][vc_column_text]We get a lot of questions from well-intentioned gardeners down here at the greenhouse –  vivid descriptions of ‘problem plants’, pictures of sad shrubs, and even bags full of fallen flora will often accompany these advice-seekers, and HANDS DOWN, the most common cause of death-and-disease for outdoor plant care is: wait for it… Not. Enough. Water. This is especially true for newly-planted vegetation! Here in Alberta, with our dry climate, consistent winds, and hot summer months, it’s hard to over-water, and easy to under-water our yards. While water is (obviously) crucial to the survival of a plant, proper watering will also:

  • Encourage faster, stronger growth
  • Allow your plants to maximize their own, natural defenses against bug infestations & disease
  • Develop strong root systems that can intake more nutrients
  • Increase winter hardiness

While it’s not rocket science, proper watering can be easily underestimated. Here’s our quick guide to watering your new & established plants appropriately (scroll to bottom for a printable version!):[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”19044″ img_size=”full”][vc_cta h2=”Get A Printable Copy” h2_font_container=”color:%23ffffff” h2_google_fonts=”font_family:Comfortaa%3A300%2Cregular%2C700|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal” add_button=”bottom” btn_title=”DOWNLOAD NOW” btn_style=”classic” btn_color=”juicy-pink” btn_size=”lg” btn_i_icon_fontawesome=”fas fa-arrow-circle-down” use_custom_fonts_h2=”true” btn_add_icon=”true” css=”.vc_custom_1624726636357{background-color: #077039 !important;}” btn_link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.anythinggrowsalberta.com%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2F2021%2F06%2FAG-Watering-Guide-2021-3.pdf||target:%20_blank|”]Get a PDF version that you can save to your computer, or print out for your reference![/vc_cta][/vc_column][/vc_row]
