With temperature soaring up to 45 degree celsius in the city, it is not just us who are facing the heat, but the plants as well. The rising mercury levels, however, have not dampened the enthusiasm of gardening enthusiasts, who are taking care to ensure that their gardens are watered well, albeit, keeping in mind the water shortage in the state.
Measure the water session
There’s a norm that gardens should be watered at least thrice a day in summers, but gardening enthusiasts believe otherwise. A businessman and an ardent gardener, Sharad Paliwal who edorses proper water management says, “The secret behind healthy and lush green feel of my garden is because I manage my water session well. I make sure that I water in the evening hours because that makes water available to the plants till the next morning and helps them deal better with the sun during daytime. Also, I check the quality of the soil and if it seems moist, I simply sprinkle water on the plants but if it is dry, I water the plants more quantity.”
