How often should I water bee balms?


Bee balms like an even supply of moisture during the growing season.  For best performance, water bee balms every 7 to 10 days during dry periods.  When watering, soak the soil to a depth of 6 to 8 inches.  Apply a mulch around plants to conserve soil moisture and reduce the frequency of watering.
