The soil in my container garden doesn't stay wet long enough. I used peat moss, bagged soil and cow manure when I set it up. I think I probably didn't use the right ingredients. Anyone have any luck in this area? Thanks

You do want it to hold a certain amount of moisture, but you definitely don't want it to be wet. In hot weather, container plants may require watering more than once a day. You can arrange a drip irrigation system for container plants, if watering more than once a day isn't convenient or possible for you.
What proportions of the ingredients you listed did you use to make up your soil mix?
Is the soil mix just drying on the surface, but staying wet deeper down?
