I recently planted a red dogwood in my front yard. It is in partial shade for most of the day but gets the evening sun. When I planted the tree, I followed the directions and mixed nutrient enriched soil in the hole with the soil from the hole, watered regularly and placed a fertilizer stake by the tree. For weeks the tree did great, but now the leaves are curling up and it looks like they are wilting. What can I do to save my tree?
