Find the Right Way to Water Your Garden
How much is too much? How little is too little? These basic watering questions have foiled many a gardener. While water is essential for any garden plant, factors such as soil, humidity, and sunlight can make a big difference. Clay soils hold water best, but take a long time to absorb. Sandy soil absorbs water very quickly, but can't hold much. You want your soil to have enough organic amendments to retain moisture and allow spaces for air to reach the roots.
