How often to water newly planted camellias
My first week on the job, I plant 40 huge camellias -- 32" rootballs, plus a couple of 60" rootballs.
I know I need to keep the soil moist, but not too wet. I've been doing this, but then the boss starts quizzing me, which creates doubt in my mind and I start wondering just how often should I be watering these big camellias.
I check the soil and it's damp. Maybe I should be misting the foliage every day? Every other day?
The camellias are planted in typical South Carolina Lowcountry soil -- on the sandy side, but a few of the holes have red clay.
I've planted lots of small camellias, but these big ones are new for me.
