A newly planted plant must be watered carefully. We suggest the “trickle down system”. Place a hose by the stem of the plant and allow the water to soak deeply into the root ball, for approximately one-half hour depending on the size of the plant. It is best to water deeply every 6 to 7 days. Roots must also have air penetration between watering. An oscillating arm sprinkler and a soaker hose is also an excellent means of deep watering.

Water 3 1/2 to 4 hours at a time to meet requirements for on inch of rainfall per week. Those plants located under trees will require a different set of perimeters for watering. Plants grown in containers must be watered much more frequently than plant grown in the ground. The smaller the container, the more frequent the watering.
