Q.Newly Planted Dogwood Trees

Anonymous added on July 19, 2011 | Answered

I planted two Dogwoods about 3 weeks ago. They are approx. 15 years old and bought from a nursery by our landscaper. They have mulch around them. I am unsure how often and how long I need to water them. Also, some of the leaves have turned red. The leaves also are turned downward. Please help me! I don’t want them to die!

For a newly planted tree, we would recommend daily or every other day watering for at least another month until the roots established themselves. After that, water deeply once a week for the rest of the growing season. By next year, they should be established enough to need little to no watering.
