Watering New Maples
Just got through 4 days of extreme heat here in NY, and I"m concerned about my 3 maples (sugar, red, crimson king) which were just planted 10 days ago. I was told to water 1-2 times per week, but I thought I should start doing it every other day as the leaves on the sugar maple are already starting to turn brown on the edges. Is there any problem in watering this frequently?
When I water, do I just need to fill up the 'bowl' that was made with the mulch, or do I need to have the water run for an extended period of time to truly have it settle in.
