How Often Do I Water . . .?

9 years ago

Seeking the advice of container gardening experts. I have a tiered metal planter with the main planting basket about four feet high and about 16" across. I lined it with cocoa fiber, filled it with Miracle Gro potting soil and planted a pink geranium (the annual type), white Bacopa and purple petunias. I have it placed beside our goldfish pond. How often should I water it as it will be affected more by heat and drying air since it is a raised basket? Weekly? Bi- or thrice- weekly? Thank you to anyone who will advise. I have mainly stuck with perennials in the ground so container annuals are a new gardening foray for me.
