Water your murraya hedge deeply but less frequently, instead of frequent light watering.
Wait until the soil dries, down to about 1 to 2 inches (2.5 to 5 cm) from the surface in between watering.
During hot and dry weather, your murraya hedge needs more water.
There is no need to water your murraya hedge during the rainy season. However, make sure that your murraya is in a soil that is well-drained.
