Watering at night
I've read in many books that it's best to water in the early morning rather than at night. Apparently it prevents disease from developing or something, but I just can't get up that early. I've resorted to watering late at night and on night's like tonight with nearly a full moon I can water well after sunset. It seems logical to me that by watering in the evening the moisture has more time to soak into the ground, less water is lost to evaporation, and it gives the wilted plants a chance to absorb some of it before the heat returns. I find it to be a more conservative approach and I've yet to see any disease problems developing. Does anyone else water at night?
