I planted two drake elms from 30 gallon containers and one is losing its leaves. Am I over watering it?
My Drake Elm Is Losing Leaves
Certified GKH Gardening Expert
A newly planted tree needs daily water for at least the first couple of weeks.
It may need more if the temperatures are above 85 degrees.
Tamp down the soil around the tree base to make sure there are no air pockets.
