how much watering do they need in the summer?



Depending on the size. I have had huge old bushes in a very dry climate, I never watered them and they still thrived. But I think all small plants need watering until their roots are so deep the ground around them doesn't dry out. Any potplants do need watering, especially in summer. After all, their roots go as far as the pot is deep and when that dries out, you know things go wrong. Why don't you put the plant in the ground instead?
