Keeping herbs watered is very important. When plants dry out, they become stressed and their overall health is compromised. Here are 5 signs that your herbs need to be watered more often.
- Herb droops or has no upright stature.
- Leaves or stems get black spots.
- Stems appear dried or woody on new growth.
- Little or no growth.
- Soil is dry more than 1/2 an inch below the surface.
Keeping herbs watered properly, improves their flavor, size and how much can be harvested over the course of the growing season.
