    Actually it depends. Right now we aren't having to water really at all because we keep getting a ton of rain. When it starts getting nicer and we aren't drenched I'm sure it will work up to every night. And we live in Western Washington.

    I keep reading on-line to only water once a week so the roots will be deep, but I can't help but think that is not a good idea in this Southern climate.

    Yeah I think you have to evaluate for where you live and what the temp is like ect. Even if it didn't rain here if we had the same temps we're having we could get away with not watering very often. But when it's warmer we wouldn't be able to do that.

    Since my garden's in pots, I water daily unless we have a good soaking rain. This week they've mostly been spit and mist.
    Western, WA

    When I lived in Eastern, WA -- temperate desert -- I relied on a 2-3" mulch and water once or twice a week once the plants were 4 or 5" tall. Until then I would water more as the mulch wasn't in place yet. Our humidity would be in the teens and summer temps 80 to 110. To reduce watering, I also used drip lines and watered at night so there would be less evaporation loss.

    I am thinking regardless of what it says on-line with temps in the 90's daily, I need to water more. I down poured last night (yay!) and it already feels dry just one day later.

    I have been watering every day and they are looking more alive and budding. We havn't had any rain in at least a week and it has been in the late 20's to mid 30's and very humid. I live in Ontario Canada

    I am guessing this is not Fahrenheit...
