In this picture, the water has gone 3 inches in 5 hours. If the soil is dry, REALLY WATER!!!!!!
HEY, IF THE SOIL IS WET, and raining, DON'T WATER..
Hose water 0-30 gallons, and sprinkler water 0-24 hours depending upon time of year and soil conditions.
The first watering is 50% of the watering that the new plant will need.
After watering for 8 hours the water has only gone down 4 inches. In some places it will be 3 feet, others, a centimeter.
Check with a shovel. You may think you watered, but it may be very dry.
