“Newly transplanted trees must remain hydrated in order for the natural process of root system regeneration to begin” writes Roger Harris, associate professor of horticulture at Virginia Polytechnic Institute.
This is something that has been repeated countless times this summer by many in the green industry, yet, I fear, some homeowners may have turned a deaf ear.
With record breaking heat and drought conditions for many in Kentuckiana, plants suffer the most if their care-giver is less than committed.
