advice for this

cghpndMay 31, 2013

I am going away for a few days, I have all the plants on the patio. They are protected from animals etc. They can all be moved back up against the wall where theh will be in shade. What else should I do to make sure they dont die in the few days im gone. The forecast says its suppose to be in the 70s-80s ....any advice?

Just water them good, and hopefully they won't dry out in a few (3) days. They should be ok.

Thanks for the advice. Everything turned out well. I soaked everything before I left. My neighbor came over while I was gone and put everything in containers. Like the very little Tupperware ones and put a qtr of water in them. Im glad she did thag because we ended up staying an extra 2 days. When we got back all the water was gone out of the containers.

My neighbor was supposed to be gone as well so im glad she was back early.

Gald it worked out for you. We'll be gone for 2 days next week. As long as it's not sunny and 95F for both days we should be ok.
