The long-awaited summer holidays have finally arrived! Your case is packed, but suddenly your eye falls on the terrace, on those lush pots that you have cared for with so much love all year round and now you fear that they may irreparably suffer your absence. Don’t worry, you’re in the right place to find out how to water your plants during your holidays: ready to follow our advice? La prima soluzione che viene in mente è la più ovvia: chiedi a qualcuno di fiducia di occuparsi delle tue creature verdi. Questa ipotesi però non è praticabile per tutti e poi lo sappiamo, c’è sempre il timore che l’incaricato sgarri commettendo qualche fatale e imperdonabile errore. Vediamo allora come fare per agire in totale indipendenza.
Before you leaveBefore locking up your house, take a few precautions:
- don’t leave your plants in the dark: if they need to stay inside, put them near a window so that they get some light;
- for your balcony plants, make sure they are in a shaded area, close together to help them retain moisture;
- leave some containers with water next to the plants, the evaporation will help to counteract the heat and high temperatures from the sun, which could dry the plants;
- another good idea might be to create a hydroponic garden, which we have already talked about in this magazine.
