There is definitely a learning curve associated with using my new soil mix in very hot weather. When we returned home from shopping around noon the tomatoes were severely wilted, as the valves attached to the reservoirs were turned off. I wanted to let the containers dry slightly to apply nutrients, but I did not anticipate how quickly the plants would use water in this heat.
Other than that I am completely satisfied with how the soil mix is performing, but I will let the automatic watering valves handle the job in warm weather.
