Keep a close eye on your pots, window boxes and hanging baskets this month. By this time of year, plants have grown out and their roots have developed fully, maximizing their water usage. Water regularly and on hot weeks it is not unusal to water once a day. Test the soil of the pots with your finger and make sure soil is moist and look for signs of wilting. Watch shade plantings, they will not need as much attention as they do not have the sun drying them out.
