Monsoon water helps the plant to rejuvenate and increase its glow. However, in case of too much water and lack of proper drainage space, the plant can die of root rotting. If you have a plant that does not prefer too much water, placing them at a location that receives direct rain showers can impact their health.
The best you can do to protect them from such conditions is move them to a location that receives less direct rain or make enough space for drainage. Another awesome thing you can do is choose well-drained soil to help prevent water stagnation.
Right Time to Prune
If there is any time of the year your plants thrive at their full speed, it is the Monsoon season. Rain shower help gives them a unique glow and broader growth that offers a stunning look. You must allow the plant to receive a new development of shoots during the rainy season. For this, pruning is the best option for gardeners, and it is the right time to encourage fuller growth.
Keep Away from Weeds
One of the biggest problems gardeners face during monsoons is the massive growth of weeds. We all know how dangerous weeds are for your plants; they take away all your plants' nutrients and hamper their growth. So, it is best to remove the weeds occasionally to keep them away. Before the monsoon season begins, you need to remove the weeds and follow the process frequently to ensure the plant grows at full speed.
Check the Green Algae Patches
Most of us have seen the green slimy layer of Algae developing over the soil during the Monsoon season. You can't let the green patches slow down your root's growth. The green Algae that grows over the soil hampers the release of gas in the plant. You must remove these green patches if you want to let your plant breathe freely. However, ensure you do not affect the soil in the process of disturbing the roots.
Keep A Check on Overwatering
Overwatering is a big issue faced by most gardeners. Deciding whether to water or not is a big decision during winters. While less watering may make them suffer if it doesn't rain, and more watering may make the roots rot if it starts raining. That is why you must balance your watering sessions. It is best to avoid watering as much as you can during Monsoon seasons. If you have to, make sure to water in limited quantities.
Offer them Support
Your plant may experience strong winds or heavy rainfall that might make them break out or make them fall during the Monsoon season. You need to protect your plant by offering them physical Support using a stick or wire. This happens mainly to the shrubs and creepers that do not have strong shoots. Even your thickest plants can fall off during extreme rains and thunderstorms. So, you must give them some external support for the protection.
Rotate them Occasionally
Your plants may experience too much water during heavy rainfall. While sunlight is scarce during the seasons, you must rotate them occasionally to different locations. Move them to a shady place during heavy rain and bring them outside on sunny days. This will help your plants to recover from root rotting easily.
