Did you know the best time to water your garden is in the morning? This allows time for the water to run down into the soil and reach the roots of the plant without too much water being lost to evaporation. Watering in the morning will allow the water to be available to the plants throughout the day. This helps plants to better be able to deal with the heat of the sun. Occasionally, due to work and life schedules, it can be difficult to water the garden in the early morning. The next best time to water your garden is in the late afternoon/early evening. If you are watering in the late afternoon, the heat of the day should have mostly passed, but there should still be enough sun left to dry the plants a bit before night falls.
