There's an art to watering to keep your plants happy Vital: Water, the garden's lifeline. Water is a vital part of a successful garden. It's needed to produce vegetables, fruits and to maintain gar- den beds and lawns. Without water very few plants would have the ability to bloom. When water restrictions are imposed, all is not lost for gardeners. In fact it's actually helping educate people about watering sustainably. A little water every day is one of the worse things you can do for your plants. Regular light watering encour- ages the roots to stay at the surface of the soil looking for water, which isn't ideal, as these plants often become top heavy and can flop and fall over because they can't anchor themselves deeply enough into the garden. Moisture is lost through leaves, bark and roots in the soil. Wind is one of the most moisture sapping elements we have to deal with. Symptoms of inade- quate plant watering are poor plant performance, plant death, visible water run-off without penetrating the soil, and dry spots along with increased levels of pest and disease. The two golden rules about watering are: 1. When and how to water 2. Mulch. When and how to water Do the finger test -- if your finger is dry when you pull it out of the soil, water the soil. Signs to watch out for are wilting leaves and the soil simply feeling dry. A garden is best watered in the morning or late afternoon. Water the soil, not the plant. This goes for pots and containers too. The roots take up most of the water, the leaves use a little but nothing in com- parison to the root system. Water thoroughly and DEEPLY every few days, two to three times a week is all that is required. Deep watering encourages the plants roots to seek down for water, which firmly anchor the plants to the ground. It is also helpful to ensure your soil retains moisture by including wetting agents. Saturaid is a granular soil wetter that helps prevent soil drying out and can be used in garden beds as well as container plants. It draws water down into the root zone where it is needed most, resulting in stronger and healthier plants. With baskets and containers that dry out completely, the best way to rehydrate them is to place the whole container in a bucket or trough of water. Let the water soak up through the soil and root zone. This may take hours, but your plants will love you for it.Mulch: Mulch is a godsend to the garden. It limits weeds, looks tidy, enables soil to retain moisture and it keeps plant roots cooler. A cooler root zone is less stressful on plants, allowing them to get on with growing, rather than just surviving. Numerous things can be used as mulch -- manures, straw and compost. Garden centres have a huge range to choose from. Christmas holiday medical services While everyone is enjoying the Christmas and New Year break, the MidCentral General Practice Teams will be operating normal business hours except for the statutory holidays of New Year's Day and the next day. City Doctors Accident and Emerg- ency Clinic at 22 Victoria Avenue, Palmerston North, will be open every day from 8am to 10pm, including all weekends and statutory holidays, and provides cover over this period for any Palmerston North practices that chose not to open. The medical practices in Feilding will run their after-hours clinics as usual, but will not be open on any statutory holidays. From 11pm in the evenings, Palm- erston North Hospital emergency department provides doctor cover for the MidCentral district. People should phone Healthline for advice first, unless they have a life threaten- ing emergency, in which case they should phone 111. Callers to Healthline will be given health advice by registered nurses, who are able to contact the on-call doctors if required. The Healthline nurses can also access the St John ambulance service, and the new Paramedic Urgent Care service; which is on trial in the Horowhenua District. For general health advice anyone can call Healthline (0800 611 116) 24 hours a day. A Healthline registered nurse will provide information. For emergencies phone 111 for ambulance assistance.
