GREENSBORO - After the hottest year ever on record in the U.S., plants are getting scorched without enough water.
Experts say the biggest mistake people make is thinking they are actually making up for the lack of rain. They're watering, but not enough.
"They need some direct water on them. An inch of rain, an inch and a half of rain, is only going to do the grass some good and some flowers," president and owner of A&A Plants, Rick Apple, said. "It's not really gonna do that much for the shrubs."
Fertilizer isn't going to solve your plant problems, either. Experts recommend susing that in the spring and fall. Right now, the best solution is water.
