How to care for your plants when it rains – expert advice for a beautiful landscape
GARDENS LOVE RAIN, especially after a hot, sticky few weeks like the ones we’ve had. However, knowing how to manage your garden when it’s been raining heavily might be difficult; here’s how to care for plants during wet periods.
In a country that isn’t used to the heat, rain provides a welcome breather for your plants. Watering the garden is never an exact science, but you can figure out how much water plants are getting and then figure out how much more you need to give them to keep them healthy. Here are some suggestions for maintaining a beautiful garden even while it’s raining.
You should avoid letting water build in a pool in your yard since this could drown surrounding plants.
After it has rained, make sure your garden has proper drainage.
Make an effort to create a decent runoff system that slopes away from the garden and is not obstructed.
Remove any dead shoots and limbs from your plants before a downpour to make them more streamline and lessen the chance of snapping and tangling.
Heavy rain, especially when combined with strong winds, can put taller, less secure plants through their paces.
Place a wooden or metal support in the ground and connect it to the plant with a gentle knot.
It will be protected against physical injury and will not snap as a result of this.
Cover young and delicate plants, such as herbs and vegetables, with a waterproof covering such as tarpaulin.
If the rain is heavy and persistent, this is very crucial to consider.
One thing to keep in mind is that the covering should be sloped in the right way.
This will provide enough drainage away from the surrounding foliage, preventing drowning.
It’s time to head out in the garden and check on your plants after the rain has stopped.
As a result of soil erosion, make sure there are no exposed roots, as this will likely harm the plants.
Before they dry out and injure the plant, cover them with earth or compost.
If the drainage is impeded, pots and planters can quickly become flooded as well.
Before, during, and after rain, inspect pots and planters and cover if required.
Slugs and snails thrive in moist, humid environments.
