Planting in the heat of late May..

Posted on: May 25th, 2012 by Jon No Comments

I have a cou­ple of jobs that require plant­ing up, even though we are in the mid­dle of a hot dry spell of weather. I have been using water retain­ing gel in my plant­ing mix­ture under­neath and around the new root ball as they come out of the pot the roots will find a wel­come reser­voir of mois­ture when they most need it.

always always water in thor­oughly and then muclh with a com­post or other soil con­di­tioner to seal in the moisture.

Then water daily until the dry spell abeits.
