I was wondering if you could tell me how much to water it, as it doesn't look too happy on the amount I've been giving it daily. Email address is pippa@hadfieldenterprise.com Many thanks, Pippa

Daily water is important for the first 2 weeks.

Then you can cut back.

Do make sure the soil is well draining so that the roots are not sitting in water. Also tamp down the soil around the newly planted tree again to make sure you don't have air pockets down around the roots.

2 to 3 inches of hardwood mulch will help with moisture retention.
