Watering in the heat of the day

Wood chips also work but no nitrogen. I would always wood chip the tree pots thickly. In the heat of the summer i water them everyday. I also fertilize a lot more then i use to. Usually a basic liquid fert…comes in those clear plastic bags.

I use rainwater when i can but i do use house water which comes from a well and the temp is about 53F even in mid summer…so it probably cools those pots down too.


Very funny! We are earlyin Maine mtns this year, green grass by mid May. A month early on snow recession but apple trees only broke bud 2 days early, they didn’t trust the warmth…
