Summer heat can be a real challenge for gardeners and vegetable growers. In such conditions, proper plant care becomes critical to maintaining yields.

In summer, it is especially important to know how to water plants properly. OBOZ.UA will tell you exactly how to do it.

Choosing the right time for watering

The best time to water is in the late evening (after 20:00) or at night. In no case should you water during the day, because moisture will evaporate quickly and can burn the leaves.

In addition, the air temperature is lower after sunset, which allows water to penetrate deeper into the soil.

If for some reason you were unable to water the plants in the evening, you can do it early in the morning, at dawn.

How to water

Before watering the garden, check the soil at a depth of 3-5 cm. If it is still wet, postpone watering until the next day.

Water should be distributed evenly and gradually. If you pour too quickly, the moisture will not have time to seep deep, so a swamp will form on top and the roots will remain dry.

Mulching

In the heat, you can mulch the soil with dry grass, sawdust, etc. This will prevent moisture from evaporating too quickly.

How to take care of your garden in the heat

In addition to watering crops properly, especially delicate ones need to be protected from direct sunlight. This can be done with the help of nets and greenhouse arcs, beach umbrellas, fabric shelters, etc.

If plants grow in greenhouses, open all windows and doors to ensure air circulation.
