Horticulture Club Suggests Watering Tip for ‘Green’ Thumbs

This week’s “Green Tip,” advice on how to “Water Properly,” is provided by the Horticulture Club: Grass lawns naturally go dry during the summer season, then return to their lush state when it rains. If you must water throughout those months, do so rarely and thoroughly to encourage deep root growth, and always in the morning to prevent water loss through evaporation and transpiration. Watering in the evening leaves a lawn damp throughout the night, making it more prone to disease. (Contacts for the “Green Tip of the Week” feature are Gail B. Landers , group leader at the Children’s Learning Center and a member of the Governance Energy Conservation Subcommittee, and Carl J. Bower Jr. , horticulture instructor.)
