Should we water 3 foot conifers which are in the ground during this dry spell or will they seek it themselves? Mrs I Ayre

They will usually seek water for themselves, but if it gets so dry that it starts turning brown then it wouldn't hurt to water them. You want them to extend roots down into the soil, and this requires being dry, but you do not want to kill them. This will just have to be monitored closely.
