Q: Are there any tips for fall/winter watering?
A: Watering in the fall and winter can be a lot different than watering in summer. The top layer of dirt can be frozen from the night before. This can cause the water to run off more than usual and not get absorbed by the soil.
The best way to ensure the water gets absorbed is to make sure each plant has a posa. A posa is a mound of dirt that makes a bowl around the plant to minimize runoff.
We also recommend that you disconnect all hoses from faucets when not in use to prevent costly repairs.
Lastly, when you finish watering, drain the hose so it does not freeze and is ready for its next use.
