The draw back of nighttime watering? Damp leaves and soil can deliver the problems for mildew.
Benjamin Pope, creator of What to Improve, Sow and Do reported: “The wet situations can also persuade slugs and snails to be lively, therefore late afternoon and early evening waterings should have some time to dry in advance of the nocturnal pests get there.
“It’s worth remembering, if temperatures are thanks to reduced appreciably to freezing, then this really should be averted and watering early in the day is improved.”
Gardeners have also been urged to stay away from watering their plants for the duration of the working day.
