Hello again everyone!
Very new gardener here - I have just planted my seeds/seedlings in my wicking gardens, and I'm worried that they aren't getting to the water. (or th eater isn't getting to them, I guess I should say!) I am still top watering as well, particularly in the areas I have direct sown, as I know they won't be reaching far enough to get to the wet soil yet. I guess I'm just looking to hear how others with wicking beds handle things - how often do you add water to the reservoir, does the rate at which you need to add water change drastically with weather/other circumstances? Have you encountered any downsides?
When I read about the process of watering with wicking gardens, I was very intrigued, and I figured there was no point in creating regular gardens, and then have to dig everything out to convert to a wicking bed later, so we just went for it, but as a new gardener I always wonder if I'm doing something wrong, so any advice/experience is greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
