mTip: Trees Need Water too!

Trees need water too!
Perennials at eye-level scream for our attention
as they droop and yellow due to shallow root systems,
heat stress and lack of water,
making us feel like bad, bad plant-parents.
Before you devote all your gardening time
 to the little guys in your yards,
don’t forget to look up to the BIG boys too.
In times of drought it’s important to
check out the tree canopy for cries of thirst
and react accordingly.

Water trees 2-3 times per week, deeply.
Keep all of your plant-babies, the small and the tall, properly hydrated
as this heat wave continues.

Oh yeah, sneak a few sips for yourself also!
