Always water your plants and your lawn in the morning. Feeding your plants in the morning gets them off to a good start and gives them the energy they need to get through the day, just as we need a healthy breakfast to start our day. In the evenings, plants wind down to rest, just like we do. Watering in the evening would be like supercharging them right about the time they are ready to go to bed. Watering in the morning, as opposed to at night, also prevents fungus from growing. Fungi like it cold, dark and wet, so watering at night provides the perfect conditions for fungus. Also, it’s better to give a really good drink all at once, rather than smaller, more frequent waterings. And don’t forget your water-soluble fertilizer once a week. Plants in containers need more attention than plants in the ground. Repeated waterings leach nutrients from the soil quickly.
