Protecting young vegetable plants
You need to take extra care with plants that have recently been planted. Ensure that the soil is always sufficiently damp. It should never be completely dry. If necessary, you can place a water ring round each plant and fill this with water every day. A tried and tested method of watering tomato plants is to place a plant pot made of plastic or, even better, of clay with a diameter of 13 to 15 cm in the ground right next to the plant and fill this with water twice a day. When the weather is windy and hot, give sensitive plants extra protection with a horticultural fleece.
