Before May 15, keep your basket above 45 degrees. After that, normal outdoor temperatures are ideal.
Keep your basket in the correct light exposure (sun or shade as indicated on the tag.) and water when needed.
1. Water for a purpose, allowing plants to “dry down” moderately between watering.
2. Use the “knuckle test” to check the moisture level in your soil. Insert the index finger up to your first knuckle. If the soil feels dry, it is time to water thoroughly, allowing excess moisture to drain from the bottom of the pot.
