Extension’s Hargest gives News Center Maine tips on watering gardens

Pamela Hargest, horticulturist specialist with the University of Maine Cooperative Extension, talked about garden watering techniques with News Center Maine for a segment titled “Gardening with Gutner.” Hargest said she is more careful to monitor rainfall in her vegetable gardens as opposed to perennial gardens because vegetables need a certain amount of rainfall each week. Then she gave tips on how to water plants if the gardens aren’t receiving enough rainfall.
