I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!
Water until you apply 1 inch of water. You can use a rain gauge or straight sided container such as a coffee can to determine how long this will take. One inch will wet the soil thoroughly without wasting water.
Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
