I planted it. I used Miracle Grow Garden Soil. I have watered it every day and am not sure why this is happening. it is turning brown on one side and losing branches. Any help would be appreciated.

Make sure you have planted the tree so that the root collar should is about two inches above the surface. While the soil is still loose water the tree, then tamp down lightly. Apply a three-inch layer of organic mulch, leaving a six-inch clear space around the trunk.
During the first growing season water the tree deeply once a week, and keep the area round it clear of weeds. Once it’s been in the ground a few months its root system will soon be large enough to keep it supplied with water and nutrients.
