Reminder - Water your newly planted/transplanted trees!

All plants need water to live. Generally, newly transplanted stock needs even more water. In heavy soils, water new trees thoroughly once a week. In light or highly porous soils, water more often.

Use judgment regarding watering. If conditions are hot, dry, or windy, the trees will transpire much more, and will need more water. If there is substantial rainfall and/or the weather is cool, watering should be reduced accordingly until conditions are dryer.

Caution: One of the most common causes of plant death is over-watering. You can literally “kill ’em with kindness.” So, be sensitive to weather conditions and water accordingly. Please call us if you are unsure.
