Watering your plants incorrectly can be a great example of good intentions gone wrong. Apart from simply over-watering your plants, watering them too frequently can also be problematic. This is when you stroll by your plants and give them a little water every day just to make sure they’re getting what they need. “Watering frequently but superficially encourages plants to develop smaller root systems, which means they will suffer during hot, dry weather,” writes Willi Galloway in a great book called, Grow, Cook, Eat. Galloway stresses it’s better to water your plants less frequently with more water than more frequently with less water.
