Rainwater is beneficial for any garden even for houseplants. Seize every rainy day and collect rain water for your plants.
Rainwater is considered to be one of the cleanest water because it doesn’t contain lime or other salts. On rainy days it’s better to collect rainwater in large containers such as barrels. They can be placed either under troughs or in an area where rainwater drains in large quantities.
When the barrel was filled cover it with a lid and store it in a cool dark place like the shed or basement. Then use collected rainwater to water the plants in the garden on dry days. This way you’ll save money and you’ll notice plants developing harmonious and healthy.
The advantage of collecting rainwater
If you don’t have an irrigation system in the garden, your plants may suffer of lack of water on dry months. Instead paying enormous bills collect rainwater to water your plants. Take advantage of what nature gives us.
But if you have a large garden and the chances to collect rainwater are small, use rainwater to the most sensitive plants.
