Nursery Stock Watering Tips

The roots of newly planted trees must not dry out completely. This is especially the case during your fist growing season, since such stress may kill the tree. Here are some helpful tips on how to water your new planted trees. Wondering how often you should water your evergreen trees or your leaf trees?   As a quick reference (under normal conditions) we recommend you water once a week from Mid April to Mid September.
