    @arslan ... different types of plants need different sorts and amounts of attention.  Tell us what you're growing, and what they're growing in, and we'll give you a daily, weekly, monthly, seasonal or annual routine checklist ... whichever is appropriate for your plants and garden.  :)

    We need to know which sort of shrubs ... they're all different and have different needs. 

    Are they in the ground, raised beds or containers?

    What sort of soil do you have in your area?

    What's the seasonal rainfall pattern in your area?

    That's evergreen shrubs grow in the ground.  I have Loamy Soil.   A lot of rain (rainy season) falls in the months: of May, June, and October.  May is the wettest month.

    That's a lot of help ... thanks @arslan :)

    Do you know the names of the species of evergreen ... some will require very different treatment.  Some can be pruned back a lot ... but that will damage some evergreen shrubs.  We do need to know what they are. 

    If you don't know the names, you could post some photographs ... together we should be able to identify them for you and give you the right advice.  If you don't know how to upload the photos just let us know and we'll give you instructions.

    The best thing I can suggest is be observant. Look at your plants, learn to recognise when plants aren't happy, judge when things need watering, spot pests and other problems early, etc.

    If you're looking for daily jobs, then weeding little and often can be easier than waiting and trying to dig out deep roots.

    A daily look around, with a coffee in hand perhaps, is a good idea, to spot things early, like weeds, or watering being required. Become familiar with your garden and you'll see what it needs once you've learned the basics as mentioned above.
  • I deadhead, weed, water, move plants that aren’t doing so well and look out for pests.  It seems to work in my garden and pond.
