Winter protection of newly planted trees
I put mulch around new planted fruit trees and covered them with black fabric for the winter. My question is about watering. Can I put the water over? If yes, how often?

Fruit trees shouldn't need to be watered during the winter in areas with cool or cold climates, because the trees will go dormant. The exception is if there is a serious drought. In that case you can remove the fabric and water the trees as needed.
