Watering Tips for Newly Planted Plants

Water and water well! 💦 Fall is the best time to plant but it's also our driest season in Middle TN! All newly planted plants (planted within the last year) need to be deeply watered every 3-4 days during fall when we aren't getting adequate rainfall (and we haven't for awhile!). For trees and shrubs, "deep watering" means setting a hose at the base of the plant on a slow stream of water for approx. 20 minutes every 3-4 days. A very slow stream of water is important so it slowly soaks down into the plant's roots and doesn't gush away from the plant. Tree gators are available here at the nursery and are perfect for trees you can't water that often. Ask us specific questions below! 💦
