I am new in gardenning. I need help in learning how to help our new 5-year-old willow tree that we just recently planted. We leave in New Mexico, planted tree according to the recommendation. I need to know how much water this tree needs after transplant and for how long it would be on that water regimin? At this point we water it 3 times a week 40 minutes each on dripping system, 1 gallon per hour. Also, this tree started dropping its flowers. Is it normal? Thank you in advance for your advice.
