Watering perennials

Watering perennials

by 3 years ago

I'm going on vacation for 10 days starting Aug 23. Will my perennials survive without being watered or do I need to find someone to do it for me

Thanks

If they're in the ground they'll be absolutely fine, perhaps give them a watering before you go. if in pots they will potentially dry out quickly so you would need to put them in shade where the sun doesn't get to them and get somebody to water them Michael

They are all in the ground but most of the beds do get quite a lot of sun

As long as established and not newly planted they will be fine. I presume you're in England in which case the forecast looks set for not v warm and rather showery weather

Oh no I'm in Ottawa Canada! Could be very hot! I thought this was a website for North America users!

Ah no it's for world wide use! but still I would have thought as long as well established ie in the ground since at least this spring they should be fine especially if you give them a good watering before you go. Perennials are v tough and if they look a bit sorry for themselves when you get back they should very quickly recover
