Best Time to Water Flower Beds
Nowadays, more and more people like gardening, and everyone has their own unique views on planting. As we all know, water and soil are two important keys to planting. With proper soil and water management, planting is half the battle. Are you worried that incorrect watering method, amount and timing will cause your plants not to flourish like others?

Usually, the most recognized watering time is early morning or evening. It's about climate. Mornings and evenings are usually cooler, especially during the warm summer months. At this point, the soil in the raised garden bed absorbs a lot of heat. If you water directly, the water temperature and soil temperature will be different, which will cause damage to the root system of the plant, so it is not suitable to water at noon.

When is the best time to water in summer? We all know that when the sun just rises in the morning, the temperature is still relatively cool. But the temperature will continue to rise, watering at this time, the plants can absorb the water well, and can also effectively evaporate the water, and will not form stagnant water on the flower bed.

This is why morning is better than evening, because when watering at night, the temperature is getting lower and lower, and the evaporation of water is much slower, making it easier to form stagnant water.

However, if after a day of sun exposure the plant exhibits extreme water deprivation, the leaves will start to fade. In the evening, when the sun sets and the temperature begins to drop, we can spray some water on the leaves to increase the humidity, which can reduce the appearance of dry tips of yellow leaves.

But in winter, the temperature is lower in the morning and evening. If you water at this time, the root system of the plant is likely to be frostbitten. In winter, the best time to water plants is midday, when temperatures are relatively warm.

And it should be noted that the temperature of watering should be similar to the temperature around the plants, so as not to irritate the roots of the plants. We can put the flower water around the plants in advance.

don't waste water

We all know that garden bed growing requires more water than other growing methods because of its larger size. But no matter which planting method you choose, you should avoid overwatering and flooding.

With manual watering, you can track soil fertility for better growing conditions and a more productive harvest.

While it is reasonable to use an irrigation system on a farm or large garden, watering needs may be more specific when growing small backyard plots with mixed crops.

Drip irrigation systems are more efficient because the water is delivered drop by drop over a long period of time, which gives the plant roots time to absorb water gradually and continuously.

How to Water Raised Garden Beds:

Professional irrigation system: Many professional accessories such as pressure pumps are used, and some are equipped with intelligent systems, which can spray water on a large area at regular intervals, but such irrigation systems are generally more expensive.

Manual watering: the advantage is that the price is low and it can form a spray; the disadvantage is that the water flows too fast and the soil is scattered. However, if you use hand watering tools to water large areas, the efficiency will be reduced.


Watering in different seasons should be treated differently. In summer, the temperature is high, and watering should be carried out in the early morning or evening. If you water at noon, it is easy to hinder the respiration of the root system due to high temperature, and problems such as root suffocation and rotten roots will occur.

Watering at a higher rate is not an easy way to stimulate a plant's root system during the cold winter months. If you water at night, freezing damage is prone to occur after the temperature drops at night, so it is best to water at noon when it is warm.

When the temperature is suitable in spring and autumn, watering can be carried out in the early morning and at noon, but attention should be paid to avoid watering when the sun is strong at noon, so as to avoid the sudden rise in temperature and the phenomenon of segregation.
