Watering Notes Water new plantings once a week until plants show no sign of stress. Taper off, relying on nature to give an average of 1" of rain per week. During times of heat stress, water slow and deep to encourage roots to grow deep.
Fertilize Notes Conifers should not be fertilized during the first growing season. Established plants that look good in color and in growth don't need fertilizer. If needed, fertilizer should be applied when dormant.
Prune Notes Prune selective branches to maintain natural shape in late winter or early spring.
