Doesn't seem to be much relief from Mother Nature these days...The gifts of water from above seems to be missing the path of the North Shore! The dark clouds of last evening hovered a bit with promise but, I was out watering this morning yet again...So, What's to be done with tired flowers and weeping leaves? Let's back up and look at what can be done...
First , if you hadnt already, a good mulching in flower beds and any new plantings helps hold moisture in while protecting tender root areas from the burning sun!
Second , A sufficient watering system , which may be a timer on a hose connection, an irrigation system or -you..should be on a regular basis during extreme heat as we have had ..
Third , remove drying foliage off plant material and if flowers have wilted , cutting back a plant will help it regenerate in a few weeks
Fourth ..make sure the plant itself has enough soil around the root area to nourish it and hold water....
All in all, it cant be perfect ...but the joy in gardening is also in nurturing !!!!
