Re: How and When to Water Your Garden

good article. i have often under-watered my garden. not any more. i like one good soaking a week. but i live where its cool. of course new small plants get more frequent watering.
i think the 1 inch per week is an nice idea and is quoted often, but don't work in practice. amount of watering required depends on many things as listed above: size of plants, type of plants, type of soil, temperature, amount of sunshine, etc.
for flowers a local expert says water less and get more flowers: it stress the plants to grow more roots and more flowers. i've tried it and feel it works.
