There are 2 rules of thoughts when watering your gardens/plants during very hot weather. I had always thought that the best time to water was at the end of the day toward dusk when things had cooled down. I've recently been informed that it's better to water early in the morning - I thought that would fry your grass & plantings. I'm trying to keep a newly planted area of perennials that kt & I worked so hard on during the past week, alive & well. Fellow gardeners ~ what do you do?
