  • Soaker hoses for bedding plants. Or if you have potted plants you can install a drip irrigation system.

    Hello Carol,


    I use SOIL MOIST in all my potted planters it works wonderfully in out hot dry summers to make watering demands a bit less frequent.

    Here’s the link with Q&A and reviews perhaps that can add some more information to assist you to make your choice of effective adjustments to your plant watering schedule. Its available at walmart and big box hardware stores. Happy gardening!

    A drip hose with the water turned on very low should do the job. If you have pots, place them low enough in the soils that the drip hose will reach their bottoms. Good luck, Carol. ☺️

    If they are potted you can get a timer that screws onto water spicket then add drip system to it so they can water each plant or a drip hose and lay it over an area. The timers even have up to 4 outlets for zones.

    Hi Carol. I'm Cindy. You can use a milk jug to keep your plants watered. Rinse out a gallon milk jug. Put a couple small holes in the bottom and lower portion of the jug. Place the jug in the soil right next to a plant. Fill the jug with water. It will drain out thru the holes and keep the soil moist. Refill the jug when it's empty. Use one jug for each plant. Best wishes and good luck.

    Hi this is Peggy. You could try a drip hose that drips water slowly.
