Is night watering really bad? Why?

A:

There are a couple of reasons, both explained in this Extension article (and based on science):  When is the best time to water the garden? (https://hortnews.extension.iastate.edu/faq/when-best-time-water-garden)

Although this is out of Iowa, the disease issues are even greater in the Pacific Northwest, where we have thousands of diseases--in the soil and the air--that take advantage of cool, moist environments to invade and harm plants.  I hope this is helpful.
