The days are longer, and temperatures are higher, which means summer is officially here in North Texas. With the hot summer heat, it’s essential for you to keep your trees adequately watered using a slow-soak, deep-watering method, such as: Gator Bags, hand watering, soaker hoses and zoned drip systems.
That being said, Fannin Tree Farm encourages you to use the following temperature-based watering guide this summer:
- 80 to 90 degrees – water twice a week
- 90 to 100 degrees – water three times a week
- 100+ degrees – water as needed
The above watering tips are simply guidelines; there is no one-size-fits-all watering schedule. Be sure to check the soil’s moisture levels before watering. If you have any questions or concerns about summer watering, be sure to contact our office at your convenience. We’d be glad to help you in any way we can!
