when to end watering drought stressed apple and cherry trees?
I've read many times that you do not want fruit trees entering winter in a drought stressed condition. My trees are all mostly still green and lush. I am watering them weekly since we haven't had appreciable rain in almost 2 months.
question is what is the sign I can stop watering. I'm assuming root growth continues for sometime after leaf fall but maybe thats wrong.
anyway what can I use as the signal it's OK to stop watering? (it takes a long time to water 150 trees.)
