Make a small crater around the bush or shrub so that the water stays there longer when watering. Generously water bushes and shrubs in the first few days, and somewhat more than usual after that, until they are firmly rooted. Depending on their size, trees require a great deal more water. Water until the water in the crater no longer seeps away. The same rule applies here: Plenty of water in the first week, and somewhat less after that. The contents of one watering can will not be enough. Use a garden hose right from the beginning – and best of all, one connected to a hose reel trolley from WOLF-Garten, then you will always have enough water available, and conveniently, too.
