should I water my pots during this winter dry spell?
london, United Kingdom
I have lots of terracotta pots on my balcony containing shrubs, perenials, herbs or just emerging spring bulbs. I also have some very mature bonsai. Most look quite healthy despite the very low temperatures at the moment. I am concerned, though, that it has been three weeks since it rained and the compost is very dry. Is it better to keep it that way to prevent the rootball freezing or should I water?
