Many annual plants need water every day, especially if they are in the sun. Don’t wait for your annual flowers to wilt before you water them. Rather, look for signs such as loss of gloss on leaves, or simply stick your finger into the soil. Most annual plants like soil slightly and evenly moist 2 or 3 inches down.
When you water your annuals, if possible, water the soil, not the plants. Many annuals, especially petunias, object to wet leaves and petals. You can set the hose on the ground on a drizzle or use soaker hoses so you don’t over water your annual plants.
