when you say "deep water" , what does that mean? 2-3 hours? The leafs on my entire tree are all tightly rolled up. I have been watering about every day for an hour. other than that my tree looks fine. Does it need more water or less??

I would dig down to about 6 inches in the soil with a trowel and check the moisture. If they soil is dry, your tree is not watered enough.
If the soil is wet, your likely overwatering. The curled leaves could be a sign of lack of water or excess water and root rot.

You are correct that the watering should be slow and deep, throughout the drip line of the tree.
