How do I water my plant?
Water is an essential factor to newly planted trees and shrubs. When your plant is first installed, it should be watered thoroughly:
- WEEKS 1 and 2 Every other day
- WEEKS 3 and 4 Every 3rd day
- WEEKS 5 and On Once a week until the end of the growing season
Examples for Thorough Watering:
- 1-5 gallon plant material Medium water pressure for 30 seconds to 1 minute
- 7-20 gallon plant material Medium water pressure for 2-3 minutes
- 1"-2" caliper trees Medium water pressure for 5 minutes
- 3"-6" caliper trees Medium water pressure for 8 minutes
If rainfall has reduced or increase be sure to water wisely. You may need to alter the watering schedule. NOTE: If your soil has completely dried, you will need to water slowly. Most of the water will run off. In this case, increase the watering time needed and trickle the water onto the soil.
The best rule of thumb for watering houseplants is placing your finger an inch into the soil. If the soil is dry then you should water.
Annuals require watering everyday for the first week and twice a week thereafter.

What is the difference between an annual and perennial?
Annuals will bloom all summer long and die off at the end of the season. Perennials come back year after year.
