are open a couple of days,in spite of dryness,but they stand under a tree.I
give no water I hope that nature do it for me.It is not much information,but
I'm a little afraid,because You are all experience garden men or woman.

outdoor plants when it doesn't rain for a week or 10 days. I have no hose,
well I do have hoses, but nothing to hook them up to, so I water with milk
cartons, the same as I do indoors. I always have at least 12 milk cartons,
rinsed and filled with cold water, which becomes room temperature  by the
time I need them.

It may not be like that in Belgium, but you could check at 9 P.M. to see if
dew has fallen. If not, I would water.
