Without water or with too much water, plants will die. Balancing a plant's water needs - giving it water in moderation - is like giving it a healthy diet. In addition, fertilizers help plants grow and develop fruit and flowers. If you don't have enough time for your plants/gardens, or plan on being away, then let us help you!
