Watering during winter
I have been watering my container maples about once a week for the last month as the temperatures have come down quite a bit in TX. I always water them deeply till the water runs out of the bottom of the containers(3 to 5 gallon plastic containers), is this a good practice to follow during winter(watering deeply), or would this lead to root rot? Should I switch to watering them lightly and more frequently?
I know the frequency of watering varies on a number of factors, but what is an average frequency like (or how often do you water in winter, once in 10 days?)?.
