Gardening is all about individual experiences and often about opinion.....of course, mine is always correct
I spray/ water my acer diss. purp during hot and dry weather but never in direct overhead sun. I have experiented and sure in my own mind that foliage can be damaged by spraying in direct sun. I have noticed this too with hostas for example. Those minute droplets of water DO intensify the sun's rays.......as far as I am concerned
auntyRach......half and half? Let us know how it works out. However, one side will be facing,the sun and one not???
if in doubt don't do it. Where is the advantage?
My lawn is looking green still Busy........I water it occasionally but we get heavy overnjght mists from the sea too that helps. However, it's less than 150 sq yards so easier to keep green than your much larger space.
a respite from the sun right now.....not necessarily the heat though....as it has become misty. Sun returned as I write this.
