Watering your plants early in the morning before 10am is best.  In the heat of the day, water evaporates quickly so much of it will be unable to reach the roots of your plants.  Also, during the middle of the day, the sun may tend to burn the wet plants.

You may prefer to water late in the afternoon. If so, after 4pm and before dark is best.  However, wet leaves and stems overnight may cause fungus or disease to grow on your plants.

You might consider doing a deep garden watering every 3-5 days rather than watering every day for short periods.  A deep watering will ensure that the water actually reaches the roots of your flowers and plants.
