 Shelton Shrub Care Watering 

Once matured, most trees and shrubs do not need much watering except during periods of drought. Plant root systems do well at finding moisture, which is why the soil is often dry around a tree base. Trees and shrubs typically appreciate regular watering the first year or so they're planted or transplanted to help them establish. Give juvenile shrubs and inch or two of water weekly. Evergreens do well with watering in autumn. Some experts believe that fall is the most important time to water. If shrubs don't get enough water in the fall, they are much more susceptible to winter damage.

Always follow the directions no matter what type of fertilizer you use. Never add more fertilizer than recommended, this will always go bad.
