podocarpus gracilior watering

Posted by TheFinder CA (My Page) on

I recently planted some podocarpus gracilior(fern pine) in our backyard. The worker that dug the holes for me suggested watering them everyday. The day I planted them I watered them and two days later the soil at the surface is still moist. I don't want to over water them. I'm located in San Diego and it's winter now so it's cool here. Does anyone have a recommendation on how often I should water them? Thanks!

RE: podocarpus gracilior watering

Often enough to maintain even moisture in the rootball -- which may be every day or two.

The soil surrounding the rootball will need to be irrigated less often (at least for a while) because the roots aren't there yet.
