The Q&A Archives: water fix

Question: mother nature's water is best for a garden, I want to know if using bottled water for my garden is a good idea, what can I do to the tap water to make it more beneficial for my garden of vegetables, fruit and flowers?

Answer: It might be a little expensive to use bottled water on your garden, but you can if you'd like. As you apply water to the ground it percolates down and picks up minerals from the soil as it makes its way to the roots of the plants. As long as your soil is healthy, the source of the water makes no difference to your plants. So instead of concentrating on the source of the water, turn your attention to the condition of your soil. Adding compost or other organic matter will enrich your soil and help your plants thrive. Enjoy your garden!
