It is mid April in Southern California and we are going to plant about 30 red tip photinias for a future hedge. Would it be best to water them with 18” deep watering stakes or just drip lines at the top of the root ball. Also, how often should they be watered?

Here are care instructions for them below. They should be watered moderately but take care not to wet the leaves to avoid fungal diseases. They should be watered on a regular basis and deeply to encourage a deep rooting system.
