Watering
During its first growing season your newly planted trees will root out in to the surrounding soil, finally enabling them to prosper without any hand watering. In the work of this establishment phase, however, they are going to be relying on you for support. It is therefore vital that you learn to water them correctly.
 
If your tree was planted in the winter, you may not require to water it at all after watering in until spring. Deciduous trees, time they lose all their leaves, become dormant & until they start to put out leaves, won't have any water requirements. Evergreen trees seldom become fully dormant & will grow slowly throughout the winter, as long as the temperature is in general above degrees C. In the event that they experience a comparatively dry winter, you may require to occasionally water evergreen trees so that they can maintain their foliage in their first year. In the coursework of the spring & summer months your trees are growing; putting out blooms, leaves & fruit, & therefore have much higher demands for water, fertilisation & care.
 
Watering newly planted trees is different to watering summer bedding. You have got to get the balance right: tiny support & they will fail, much & they will seldom become independent! The best approach is to give your trees deep soakings, than every day light sprinkles. This encourages the roots to seek water (& thereby grow out in to the soil around it) as they sense the soil moisture levels gradually dropping in the little fibrous roots developed in the work of their time in our Air-Pot method. They install a perforated pipe that is wrapped around the rootball 1/3 of the way down to facilitate watering, but also to permit air to circulate around the roots. The later is important in the work of the trees first year, because without air the roots will die. Watering in to the tube encourages root development but in the work of hot, dry weather the original rootball can quickly dry out & top watering may be necessary, achieved by leaving a hose jogging slowly near the base of the tree. In the event you or somebody else has already planted your tree & you don't have a perforated pipe for deep watering, don't despair. Whilst not ideal, you can encourage root development by watering less near the stem of the tree, gradually becoming more generous as you move out away from the rootball, then the backfill zone & finally out in to the adjoining soil. Watering in this way will encourage the roots to 'chase' the moisture outwards as the soil gradually dries out nearer the stem, but you most not over water or there will be tiny if any air movement to the roots which can be terminal.
