Host Richard Hentschel discusses the need to water in August, especially the new transplants in the landscape. Older plants that remain stressed also benefit from being watered. Plants that flower and later fruit are using more water than those plants that do not produce a large crop of berries, nuts or seeds. Vegetables will continue to produce fruits if water is available
