Time to water

Seeing it is Tuesday and I live at an even numbered house I can legally water my garden tonight between 8PM and 10PM using a hose with a trigger nozzle (I guess that's a health and safety requirement incase I fall asleep an the hose!)

About 2 minutes into the watering (which only lasted 5 minutes for my little garden), I realised I didn't have a good plan how best to water. Should I soak the area around the plants or spray a fine mist. What is the best technique? I'll have to start researching that.

It was am amazing how many neighbours (on my side of the street) where also out and watering. Maybe the water restriction will have a side benefit of a renewed community spirit.
