Water when rain is scarce. Most plants only need one inch per week. do the job in the morning and really soak each plant. That will encourage deep root growth, which in turn will be better for the plant when the soil dries out again. Water at the base of the plant to avoid wet foliage which can encourage fungal issues. Gardening is a life long learning adventure, but those three tips will give anyone the proverbial green thumb.
