Watering My Hanging Petunia Basket
When I water my hanging petunia basket, is it okay to sprinkle over the blooms? The basket is hanging very high and I want to sprinkle with a wand; is this okay to water over the blooms?

Watering the foliage or blooms of plants is usually not a good idea, as it can lead to fungal infections, which thrive in moist conditions. If you must water with a wand, try to keep the water stream/spray towards the base of the plant, taking care to keep the foliage/blooms from getting too wet.
