Watering during the Florida Summer

Watering – Although our rainfall has begun to increase, many of our plants, especially newly planted ones are showing signs of stress.  Look for wilting leaves, and in severe cases, leaf discoloration.  On the other hand, too much can cause yellowing and dropping of leaves.  If you have citrus trees, remember they need lots of water in June and July as fruits enlarge; otherwise, when you go to harvest them, they may be dry inside.
