Can you plant right after it rains?
Likewise, people ask, is it better to plant before or after rain?
Plant Seeds Before It Rains Dry soil is easier to work with than wet soil and seeds are less likely to rot in soil that doesn't stay soggy for prolonged periods. Add in a nice rain shower, and you won't need to drag out the garden hose to water your newly planted seeds.
will heavy rain damage plants? Heavy rains and thunderstorms can cause plant damage. Add fresh soil or compost as exposed roots can dry out which will seriously harm or kill your plant. Replenish the nutrients. Rain can carry away much needed nutrients for your vegetable plants.
Secondly, can you plant when the ground is wet?
If you can form it into a ball, the soil is too wet for planting. (Chances are the seeds will rot.) If it crumbles through your fingers, it's ready for planting. If it's shiny, then there's too much water near the soil's surface to dig and plant.
Is it better to plant in wet or dry soil?
Yes, you should wet the soil before planting. This is a crucial step to take to ensure your planting goes well. Skipping this step may cause your plants to not root well in the soil or cause them to dry up and die shortly after placing them in the ground. Dry soil just won't do the job.
