Master Gardener Tips On Late Summer Watering

Texas A&M Agrilife

Hunt County Master Gardener Wayne Bowman says lawns and gardens need about one inch of water per week.  Wayne says some afternoon wilting of plants in the heat is normal, but plants should not look wilted in the morning.  He says to feel about an inch deep in the soil with your finger, and if it's dry, it's time to provide water.

John Mark Dempsey is the host of the public interest program The Blacklands Café from KETR News. Dempsey is also the play-by-play announcer for Commerce Tigers Football on 88.9 FM and on ketr.org.
