Caring for summer gardens
Correct watering in very hot
weather is crucial to keep your
plants happy, healthy and alive.
Plants in pots or hanging
baskets have a finite amount
of soil and depending on the
situation may require watering
a couple of times a day in hot
Plants like hydrangeas and
fuchsias require a lot of water
while succulents are lower
If not sure, use a water meter,
a wonderful inexpensive tool.
Newly planted plants require
more regular watering than
well established plants.
For plants in the ground, the
rule is: water as heavily as you
can, as little often as you can.
Newly planted plants may
need water 2-3 times per week.
Well established trees may be
once a month.
When planting you can add
water crystals to the bottom of
your hole, which helps store
Form a nice saucer around
your plant which you can fill
with a mulch like peastraw or
sugarcane mulch which helps
hold the moisture in.
Spraying new plants or sun
sensitive plants with “Drought
Shield” or “Envy” slows the
plants water transpiration rate
and also acts like sunscreen for
plants. This spray is effective
for three months.
Drippers are the most
efficient, economical and time
saving way to water your plants.
At Barossa Nursery it is
recommended using drippers
with a six-hour tap timer or
have a hose trickling quite
slowly in your plant saucer
This will deliver 20 plus
litres of water to your plants.
The water will penetrate deeply.
The plant roots chase deeply
after the water and deep roots
are deep and cool and well
equipped to handle 40 plus
degrees for the plants above.
Using a soil wetter (like
a non-alkaline detergent)
will also help deep water
of Seasol strengthen
plants against heat and
This is how to water your
plants in summer and Barossa
Nursery staff are happy to
advise you with your watering
So many people come into the
nursery wondering why their
plant is not thriving, because
they just give it a squirt with
a hose (lucky to deliver 2-4
litres of water) or use their
drippers every second day for
10 minutes (delivering one
litre of water and keeping roots
hot and stressed by the surface).
Or they give it one watering
can of water a week (would you
survive on nine litres of water a
week, standing in the hot sun)?
In summary, water plants in
pots regularly, water plants in
the ground as heavily as you
can, as infrequently as you can
get away with and use a water
meter (available from Barossa
Nursery) to guide you when
plants need water.
This week Barossa Nursery remains open as the
team shift all indoor plants, giftware and plantcare
goods into their big shed.
They are hoping it will all fit and appreciate your
patience as they expect to be a bit disorganised.
Next week the bulldozer will come and a couple
of weeks later, Ahrens will start building the new,
much larger, fabulous showrooms.
Barossa Nursery will be operating out of the
shed, open for business.
The outdoor garden area will remain as is, still
with a great selection of plants.
Ahrens expect to be out at the end of June. The
new showrooms will be fitted out in July and are
expected to be operational in August.
The nursery will remain open for trading the
entire period, working from the shed with normal
