How much do I water and feed my vegetables?

Providing your growing vegetables with sufficient water and food is vital if you want a bountiful and healthy harvest. Depending on what vegetables you have planted the fertiliser requirements will vary.

There are lots of commercially available organic and non-organic plant foods available. Simply choose the product which best suits your preference and follow the manufacturers
recommended dosage rates. If you have any doubts or concerns, your local nursery professional will be only too happy to advise you.

Your watering regime should be based on the size of your vegetable garden and the position it is located (or aspect).

Central Highlands Water have developed a handy guide which details exactly how long and how often you’ll need to water. There is also a handy weatherproof watering tag you can fill out and attach to your tap so you never forget. 

Both items are available free of charge from Central Highlands Water by emailing us.
