Here is a tip I'd like to add. If you pot plants put in several chunks of wood surrounded by the soil like thicker pieces of trimmed branches cut them to fit. They should take up about a 3rd to half the space also cover the surface with straw or mulch. This will cut down how often you have to water them as the wood acts like a sponge holding the water and as it breaks down provides nutrients for the plants and the mulch keeps the water from evaporating. This also works on a larger scale in the garden as raised beds and even in field crops it's called hugelkultur. I just adopted to potted plants. You can look it up for more info.
