|I live in Hickory NC. We are in the foothills. I have several cherry toms in containers and flowers of various kind in containers all on my wood front porch and it's mostly sunny on the porch. When is the best time of day to plant. |

|Early evening (so that the transplants have some cool-down time to recuperate) or on cloudy days.|

Did you mean, the best time to water?
That would be in the early morning as that gives plants what they need through the heat of the day, and allows the leaves to dry to prevent problems. That being said, if the soil is dry to the touch when you stick your finger down in the container, and the leaves look wilted, it doesn't matter what time of day it is...give the plant a good drink, just try to keep from drenching the leaves to prevent scalding them.
