Should I water an apricot tree when it has blossoms?
Certified GKH Gardening Expert
Apricot trees do need a deep watering early in the spring, when the soil has warmed but before budding.
You should have a damm of soil around the canopy of the tree; 5 inches high.
Fill the area with 4 inches of water and allow to drain in.
The water should soak in within an hours time.
Do this once a week. Do not overwater.
