Title: Care for your Garden - Water Properly

Abstract: Water is essential for plant growth. It supplies the
hydrogen and oxygen needed for carbohydrate
formation in the plant. It also moves mineral nutrients
from the soil into the plant and then to the part
of the plant where they are needed. Water is necessary
for the transpiration process, which cools the
plant. In addition, water maintains the turgidity of
the plant and prevents drought stress.
Garden plants grow vigorously only when their
roots are supplied with adequate moisture. Although
roots should be kept moist, the soil around
them should not be too wet, because too much
water excludes oxygen that is vital for the proper
growth and function of the roots.
