Best time to water containers?
We are new to gardening and I've read two schools of thought on the subject. When is the BEST time to water containers (tomatoes/dwarf fruit trees/plants)? I live on a south-facing terrace in So California and it certainly is taking the heat (98 degrees +) as probably a lot of other cities are this summer.
One school says that the best time is in the morning so the plant can take the day heat and dry out so not to attract the night bugs while another says that the plants need a cool drink at the end of a summers day. We've had our share of bugs--thrips, cabbage worms & leaf miners as-well-as leaf drop to possibly overwatering. Any advice would be very helpful. Thank you.
