careful watering

A tip I picked up listening to gardeners' question time many seasons ago was to water in stages. I also always use a watering can - good exercise and you put in what the pot needs and no more. 
I also 

  • water early in the morning or late at night
  • use  half a can's worth per container and leave the plants to take in the water for 15 - 20 minutes
  • then top up until you can see water coming through the bottom.
  • Even in a dry spell the pots last a few days.
