Summer watering instructions: frequency is dependent on daily temperatures

60-70 degrees - water every other day

80 degrees + - requires daily watering (slowly soak, wait, and soak again during high temp days. Morning

watering is ideal, but watering in general is key. Shade plants will need less watering, but still check.)

Water containers thoroughly, getting all edges of the pot as well as the center. Even when we get rain,

be sure to check your containers to see that they received proper hydration.




Fall Watering Instructions :

As the temperatures cool, you will not need to water as much, but a good, slow soaking is important when you do water. Check your pots even when we get rain, as the rain will run off large leaves of fall plants.

The fall product has denser roots, so it takes longer for the water to soak in and absorb. Lift cabbage and kale leaves to reach the soil.





Winter Water Instructions:

The greens have been inserted in the soil of the pots. Natural hydration by rain or snow every week is sufficient. Water your containers every week if no hydration.

Watered greens will stay hydrated and last longer and prevent drying out.





Spring Water Instructions:

The cooler spring temperatures will allow you to water every other day, to every third day, but check your pots to make sure they are hydrated. Do not depend on the “spring showers” to water your containers- a good soil soaking is always best. The spring plants are made to withstand cold temps and even snow. However, a hard frost may do some damage, so we recommend a light frost cloth or sheet if the weather is calling for a hard frost warning or below 30 degrees. Please do not use plastic or hard coverings on your pots.
