I'm new to gardening in containers, but have begun by (mostly) having plants in ordinary plastic plant pots sitting inside glazed pots. One thing I've learned is that in very hot, dry weather, even plants that could normally be left unwatered need to be watered generously and often!

You have a nice collection of plants and containers. :D You are right about the watering. We water containers once a day, usually in the early morning. If it is a really hot day, they get watered again in the early afternoon. We are always watering something here.
