Watering Murraya Hedge | How Often and How Much to Water Your Murraya

Too much or too little water can be harmful to your murraya hedge, just like in most plants.

Water your murraya hedge deeply but less frequently, instead of frequent light watering.

Wait until the soil dries, down to about 1 to 2 inches (2.5 to 5 cm) from the surface in between watering. 

During hot and dry weather, your murraya hedge needs more water.

There is no need to water your murraya hedge during the rainy season. However, make sure that your murraya is in a soil that is well-drained.

Important Points When Watering Your Murraya Hedge

  • Water your murraya hedge deeply and less frequently, but it must not stay in waterlogged soil for too long.

Root and crown rot is a real risk for over-watered murraya hedges.

  • Like most citrus fruits, murraya is drought-tolerant. 

But take care not to allow your murraya hedge to stay dry for too long either. Prolonged drought will cause stress to your murraya hedge.
