Q.I Have A New Bloodgood Maple. The Weather Got Hot While I Was Away And Leaves Are Dry & Shriveled. Help!!
It was watered when planted and watered once after that. They told me to “water all summer” but not how often. It got hot (90) a couple days while I was away and I came back to dry, shriveled leaves. I have been watering it, but l’ve read not to water too much. How can I save it? Thank you! By the way I live near Portland Oregon.
