1. Water Early, Water Often
Intense heat will make your plants extra thirsty. Aim to maintain consistent moisture levels in your soil by watering your plants slightly more frequently than usual. Try to water them early in the morning to prevent heat scald and/or wind from sweeping away any sprinkler water. If all this watering feels too overwhelming, you can also consider installing drip lines for deep and regular irrigation. Note that container plants will drain water more quickly than in-ground plants, so be sure to give them some extra love.
