Plant Care During Summer

The heat that has been fairly consistent this summer has come with it a lack of precipitation in some parts of the state and that is causing headaches gardeners. 


You need to water your plants religiously during hot and dry periods, but not to the point of drowning them according to one garden expert. Sarah Ruth, U of I Extension Program Coordinator says if you pay attention, your plants will show you when they need a drink.



You can move potted plants and hanging baskets to shadier areas, and experts agree you should not fertilize in extreme heat.
