Although adequate water is essential to ayoung tree's health, it is easy for a gardener to overdo irrigation. Overwatering is a common cause of damage to backyard trees, especially those grown in heavy or poorly drained soils. Waterlogged tree roots cannot absorb the oxygen they require.
How do I know if my tree needs water? To determine if the plant needs more water, dig in the soil with a screwdriver to feel how moist the earth is. If it's dry, then it's time to water; if it feels damp, hold off on watering for a couple of days. Another factor when determining how much water atree may need is the climate where it is going to be planted.
Should I fertilize newly planted trees? Should a newly planted tree be fertilized? It is generally not necessary to fertilize newly planted trees. If the tree is growing poorly two to three years after planting, fertilization may be beneficial. Poorly growing trees typically exhibit sparse foliage, yellow-green leaves or short annual twig-growth.
How much water does a tree need a day? A general rule of thumb is to apply 10 gallons of water for every inch of trunk diameter when you water. Measure the trunk diameter at knee height. You caneyeball the diameter or hold up a ruler or yardstick to get the inches. The general watering formula is: tree diameter x five minutes = total watering time.
Will wilted clones come back? Every time I_take a cutting, after about an hour, it wilts over to the side and the leaves wilt too. After a few days, it does start to come back, and within a week to ten days my clones are standing strong.
