Spring & Summer Outdoor Watering Guide

We get a lot of questions from well-intentioned gardeners down here at the greenhouse –  vivid descriptions of ‘problem plants’, pictures of sad shrubs, and even bags full of fallen flora will often accompany these advice-seekers, and HANDS DOWN, the most common cause of death-and-disease for outdoor plant care is: wait for it… Not.
