It should be established enough to not have to water at all at this time. They don't take long to take to the soil, and will only need watering once completely dry.

You can safely stop all watering until Spring. Even then, when you resume, it should only be during very dry conditions. You should still allow the soil to dry thoroughly down to 2 or 3 inches between waterings.
