2. For outside watering, it’s important to give you plants a drink first thing in the morning and last thing in the evening.
This will ensure that outside temperatures aren’t too hot, preventing the water evaporating off the surface of the soil and giving it a chance to soak down to the plant’s roots.
3. Compacted or heavy soils that pool water on the surface, probably do so because the ground’s too dense for the water to reach the plant’s roots. For this, take a broom handle and push the end into the earth, it’ll make a tunnel for the water to travel down.
