Have a happy Fourth, everyone! And here's how to give your plants a holiday treat.

All plants can use a slow deep soaking at least once during the long hot summer. To do this, turn your hose onto a slow trickle and allow it to flood the area around your plants until the water reaches the depth of 6 to 12 inches for lawns and gardens, 12 to 24 inches for shrubs and 18 to 36 inches for trees.

The use of a soil probe can also help you determine what depth you have watered to.

It's going to be a hot 4th of July weekend. Make some homemade sorbet to cool off. Three ingredients and three steps, it could not get easier!
