Care for Drought Tolerant Plants


Anonymous added on March 19, 2016 | Answered

How do I care for drought tolerant plants when first planted? I just planted White Rockrose and Tree Mallow plants. How do I care for them until they are established? Should I fertilize at all?

Drought tolerant plants will need regualar watering until they are established.
Watering will vary according to your soil type.
Watering in the morning hours as this will mean less evaporation.
Deeper watering will help grow good, strong roots.
Here is care information for your new plants.
