Drought-Keep Watering!


This map from late September shows that Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts are in extreme drought.   Until we get some serious rainfall, our new plantings will need to be watered until the ground freezes. Even our established plants, including shrubs and trees, will need water to prepare for the winter. During periods of drought, it’s particularly important to water well leading up to the first freeze to help prepare for the winter ahead.
