Q.Drip System Watering for Container Trees

Anonymous added on March 4, 2011 | Answered

I’m very excited to learn that I can have a red bud tree in a container. Is it too much water if I drip water it every day in the heat of summer? Where I’m going to place this tree is in the west, very hot sun (Texas style). Will I have good success, or am I wasting my time and money? Should I look for another type of container tree that’s got some beauty to it?

I think it would be an excellent idea to use a drip irrigation system for a container tree. You may need to adjust how much water it gets, but just keep an eye on making sure the soil is damp, not soaked, and it should be fine.
