After the installation of your new shrubs, trees or flowers, it is vital that you care for them. Shrubs and trees will often look beautiful with minimal care for years. During the first year or two of growth be sure to water regularly and give them extra care with some plant fertilizer until the plantings are established. After that, a shrub or tree should need no water beyond the annual rainfall in this area.
When getting the new plants established, think of it this way, if you have been working in the garden, your body needs water and food to regenerate strength. The same works for your plants. Make sure you water your shrubs daily for the first few weeks after installation so they can gain the strength for brillant color and long life.
