To grow next to the Creek or not?....
    #342415 - 01/07/10 04:55 PM (6 years, 10 months ago)

Just moved to the western (dessert) part of Colorado and am living on a horse ranch with a creek running down the middle of it... I've never done an outside grow but have always wanted to and thinking with all the space i now have that this spring is a great time to start!
My question is would it be better to plant next to the stream bank allowing nature to take care of my watering or move it back away and do the watering my self...
I live in the dessert so pants tend to dry out and other then the juniper trees and some cacti the only green in the place is by that creek.
I'm not to worried that the creek will not supply enough water cause i can water them my self if i need to im more worried that it'll be to wet for them any thoughts?

Water them yourself so you can add nutes, also dont worry about over watering plants in the ground.

Does this stream dry out at any point?

If you have plenty of sun near the stream and it is a safe area I would go for it.  Go out and dig a few holes close to the stream bed. Try and figure out how much this stream wicks the surrounding land and plant accordingly. If you get it right I would think your ladies would thrive in those conditions, assuming the stream doesn't dry out. Plus you'd be getting a lot of natural food from the minerals deposited by the stream.

I have planted along river bed with stellar results. it should work with a stream too.

No it doesn't dry out it draws its water from a lake and small dam up a ways and is used year round by the fruit farmers who live below me to irrigate there crops. Thank you for the advice. I was really hoping to be able to plant next to the creek if only cause it's the only place around with any green left to hide my girls in come summer.
