Hi asOO7, I'm no expert, but I water my containers pretty much daily during the summer, sometimes twice, dependent on how thirsty the plants are, how hot its been and if they are in full sun or not. Mine are done first thing in the morning, so as not to give slugs an easy ride, unless something is looking particularly wilted, then I give it a drink, by watering the soil only with warm water, just to perk it up. Also I've found containers need liquid feeding more often as watering washes the nutrients away. RE pansies, I've found pansies do best in Spring and Autumn when its cooler, so my pansies are under a tree in dappled sunlight during the hot summer months.
