Gardeners know how big of an impact the water has on the plants – small or excess amounts of water can destroy the plant.
And in the summer months, both situations can happen. However, there is a more frequent water shortage in the garden due to strong sunlight and long dry periods. Although less common, plants may have an excess of water – especially those in pots. If the water stays in the pot (for example, if the puncture holes are too small), the root will not have oxygen and can easily die – and this means the plant’s death. If, after heavy rain or water dripping, the water stays in the substrate and the plant does not absorb after several hours, we should certainly pour it out.
In the shade of the house, it is useful to have a water tank to collect rainwater. He sure should be covered because it will soon become a paradise for breeding mosquitoes. If we do not have the capability, the water from the water supply should be left to leave it out of the harmful chlorine for the plants. Aged water is not cold like those of water supply, so plants that are warmed by the summer heat will not experience a temperature shock which has a negative impact on the development of flowers and fruits, but also the growth of the whole plant.
When we go on vacation, we have to be careful that the plants have enough water and we have to ask someone to take care of them. Of course, you can always use pipes and tubes systems which ensure a regular supply of water.
