you normally plant annual flowers in your yard, chances are you’ve already
chosen the species, color and planting layout.
have you thought about your watering system? Annual flowers do best when their
irrigation water comes from underneath them — not from on top like from
watering cans or hoses. That’s because water droplets sitting on leaves and
petals — when coupled with our scorching summer sun — can actually cause damage
to the plant.
help avoid this and get the most out of your annual flowers, look into watering
systems that are buried in the dirt and moisten the roots from below. A good
option is to install drip lines, such as those from Netafim, in flower beds or
even in pots if necessary. Though there is an initial investment in installing
drip irrigation to your annual flowers, it will be able to be reused season
after season and year after year.
