How Often To Water-5 and 15 Gal. Trees?

Posted by benesesso 9 (My Page) on

Bought a 5 gal. Tangerine Beauty vine, a 15 gal. Desert Willow, and a 15 gal. Chinese Pistache. The are still in the store containers--~3 weeks later. Will plant soon, but I'm wondering how often/much to water them before planting.

Do they need water every day? Max. temps have been 75-80 deg.

I have poured lots of water on them but have never seen any water come out of the bottom drain holes in the plastic containers.

Once a week during the winter.
