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 Fertilize only in the spring with a formulation for broadleaf evergreens.
Prune Notes Avoid late fall pruning. Shear all or most of new growth to maintain size.
