Watering Flowers In Clay Pots - Knowledgebase Question

Carlisle, PA
Question by allison_reul

I have quite a few flowers and herbs in clay pots on my deck. They are on the North side of the house and get sun all day in the summer.
I am wondering if I need to water them everyday. Sometimes I will check the soil in the mornings, and it still feels moist, so I won't water them. But when I return in the evening, the plants look really bad.
Should I water them every morning even if the soil is still moist and not totally dry yet?
Thank you.
