Bowel prep help

Hi I'm just looking for a bit of help/advise, I'm having my firstflexible sigmoidoscopyon Thursday at 17.15 in the evening, I had a package sent to me with info of my appointment and a bottle of enema, but nothing to say when the best time to use it would be, it just says that i cant eat any thing after taking it, would morning time be best or the night before? any advise would be very helpful?
I usually do mine in the afternoon. When I had a sigmoidoscopy, I did the enema in the afternoon, and then before the procedure, the nurse gave me another. I'm not sure if every facility does that, but that's just how it went with mine. Good luck and I hope you feel better.
