Watering Hanging Basket Herb Garden
It is not necessary and healthy to water your hanging basket herb garden every single day, since not all herbs love moisture. Aside from taking into consideration watering preferences of herbs when deciding watering frequency of your hanging basket herb garden, you will also have to take into consideration the material/s the hanging basket is made of and where the hanging basket herb garden is located. Watering frequency will not be hard to decide if you will just have an idea or knowledge about the basics on taking good care of your hanging basket herb garden.
Type of Material Used
Watering frequency will greatly depend on what type of material is your hanging basket made of. If your hanging basket is a wire basket lined with peat moss, then you will probably need to water your hanging basket herb garden every day, since the type of material of your basket and the moss can drain water quickly. And if your basket is plastic, you will only have to water your hanging basket herb garden maybe 2 times to 3 times per week, since plastic material is very effective in retaining moisture, unlike the wire basket.
Location of Your Hanging Basket Herb Garden
If you make your hanging basket as an indoor herb garden, then you will not need to water it once a day, since your hanging basket herb garden is not located somewhere windy and somewhere with an access of direct sunlight. And in contrast with indoor herb garden, you will have to check regularly, at least once a day, the moisture of your soil in your hanging basket herb garden, if it is located outdoors. The sunlight and the wind can evaporate the water quickly, which can leave your hanging basket herb garden dry.
