Your holiday plans might include leaving the area, but be sure to include planning care for your indoor and outdoor plants while you’re away.
You might be able to find a trusted neighbor or friend to keep your indoor plants healthy while you are gone, but don’t forget about watering outdoor plants in Kansas City.
Many outdoor plants are easy to forget about because they seem to be entirely self-sufficient, but your plants still need TLC now and then.
During the winter months, it’s especially important to be attentive to the needs of your outdoor plants due to natural factors, like:
- The air is drier.
- The ground is less moist.
- Lower temperatures can inhibit or prevent proper absorption of nutrients needed by your outdoor flora.
One way to make sure your outdoor plants have the right amount of water is by setting up an automated sprinkler system and connecting a soaker hose.
This setup will water your plants on a schedule, and the soaker hose will ensure thorough saturation and distribution of the water.
You can also save your plastic bottles and empty two-liter containers, and devise an in-ground watering system yourself. This method will trickle water into the ground over time.
Lastly, create a string watering system that provides the right amount of water to your plants for the duration of your absence.
