How to know when to water your plants in the fall
Take a walk through your planting beds and see if there are any open areas that you may want to add plants for the next season. Sales are currently going on at the nursery and fall is the perfect time for those late additions. With the cooler weather and shorter days, reduce watering of new plants to every other day for larger plants and every 3 days for perennials. Due to differences in ground type, be sure to double check before watering. You can do this by sticking your finger into the first few inches of the ground near the plant or by using a moisture meter. Remember if the ground feels moist don’t water.
