Brugmansias need frequent garden watering

Brugmansias need frequent garden watering

Growing brugmansias requires a large volume of garden watering.

Gardening enthusiasts who are looking to grow brugmansias need to be aware of the level of garden watering that the plants require.

Michael Parkey, a gardener and landscape architect from East Dallas, was well-known for his impressive examples of the tropical species.

But the Dallas News reported that the cold weather and the low amount of rainfall this year have both affected the growth of his plants.

"This year they are less than half their size of last year. If I wanted to water them three times a week, they'd look great," Mr Parkey explained.

He added that he has managed to create his wonderful varieties with garden watering alone in the past, as he does not advocate the use of sprays or fertilisers.

Effective garden watering could also be of huge benefit to people who are looking to grow their own veg, with gardener Alison Cook telling the Sentinel that she has managed to produce high yields on her allotment.
