Q.Watering Perennials

Zone Aurora, Illinois 60504 | msmith6747 added on August 7, 2019 | Answered

Watering my perennial garden has stumped me forever. My garden is on the west side and gets hot afternoon sun. I don’t know how often to water or how much to water. Some plants are new and some are established.
I am in Illinois zone 5.

Make it easy on yourself! Water once the soil is dry down to 2 or 3 inches, completely. You can check daily, or every other day with your finger, or a soil moisture meter.

Outside of this, there is no set watering amount of time frame since every place has a different climate.
