Watering during the heat of the day

12 years ago

I'm sure most of you have been affected by the terrible heat this summer. I've been watering early in the morning before it gets too hot and evaporation begins. However, my neighbor swears that if you water your plants when it's hot in the afternoon that you will surely kill them. Is this true?

I just assumed that you would only be loosing your water to evaporation and not actually be hurting the plants. Thanks!
