When to water my clay soil?
Ok, so I put a semi-dwarf Cara Cara and a 5 gallon Wonderful Pom in the ground 3 weeks ago. I did a really deep soak after planting. I've only watered one since because my moisture meter keeps saying the soil is wet. I have reddish brown clay soil and this is a new home 1 1/2 yrs old. The clay is staying moist, but I'm worried that it is just the soil type and I may need to water more. I did no amendments based on recommendation on this forum. Do I watch my meter or do I water on a schedule? I'm new to in ground planting. Any tips would be great.
