Don't Forget Your Containers

Plants in pots are especially vulnerable to drying out in hot weather because their roots are confined to a small area and can't extend deeper in search of moisture. When starting a container, give plants a thorough drink using a watering can or a soft-spray nozzle on a hose. Water often—whenever the soil is dry 2 to 3 inches below the surface—and fertilize regularly. See more musts in Container Garden Planting Tips and How to Plant in Pots.
