WSU Lewis County Master Gardeners shared a post:
DISPELLING HORTICULTURAL MYTHS: Does Watering Plants on a Hot Day Cause Leaf Scorch?
While early morning watering is best, don’t wait until evening if you see your plants showing signs of wilting. They will not be harmed by mid-day watering. And, waiting until evening is not recommended as leaving plants with wet leaves in the evening can encourage some fungal pathogens to develop.
