Question about watering garden?
Have a few annual and perennial herbs in the garden.
Have been using a hose with a nozzle to water them, but I can tell they didn't like that at all, as the spray was too much, and too much water got on the leaves.
Now using a misting system that distributes water evenly, and only mists the leaves, as the water drips into the roots.
The plants are doing much better.
But, usually watering twice a day because it's hot.
Someone said if I let them dry out for a day or two then they'll grow even better, because they roots will grow deeper, as they search for more water.
So should I maybe skip the daily watering routine, and see what happens? I'm hesitant because my plants like the mist and it shows! Especially during this heat wave, hot!
