Water new trees once a week, regularly, during the first season, with l0 gallons of water. More for large trees. Pour the water down the trunks so it goes into the root ball, not along the top of the ground. In addition, whenever the leaves droop down or it is very hot, water again and mist the tops with the hose. Do not fertilize the first year.
Shrubs and hedges can be trimmed monthly during the growing season. By trimming them back they’ll grow more slowly. The slower a shrub grows the thicker and better it will look.
