Spring Garden Tips
Care For Your Trees

Proper watering and mulch is the best thing you can do for the health and longevity of your trees. Water new plantings thoroughly and often enough to keep the root ball moist. Check newly planted trees growing in well-drained soils twice a week and those in heavy clay soils once a week. Even established trees benefit from thorough watering during drought. Water thoroughly whenever the top 4 to 6 inches of soil are crumbly and slightly moist.
