We suggest that this Fall you make sure and water your trees and shrubs in well. Every third day, set a sprinkler under your tree and water for 2 hours in a spot getting everything under the drip line soaked up well. Keep doing this until we get a hard killing frost. People that dig in the dirt for a living say the ground is really dry at least 4 feet deep. We need to replenish this lost moisture for our trees and shrubs to have the best possible chance for winter survival.
