Does your friend have a watering can?

I’d probably fill up a couple jugs and saturate the soil if it were me. Or you can buy her a 2 gallon watering can from Lowes for like, 3 bucks.

I would check the forecast once a week or so. You don’t want to water and then have a DOWNPOUR the next day.

 

Watering cans are fine. If she doesn’t have those, any jug will do. Water evenly, not just near the root. Don’t drench them, either (you’ll know when you drench them – they’ll show yellow in their leaves). Give them a good drink but don’t water too often. In the summer in the NE, every few days is fine.
