Answer: It's important to keep newly transplanted shrubs well watered, but you may be overdoing things. Your shrubs should be watered deeply once each week; apply water slowly so it has a chance to trickle down and wet the entire rootmass. You might want to build a watering basin beneath each and fill the basin; allow it to drain, then fill it a second time. Wait 3-4 days and then dig down to see how moist the soil is. If it is still moist 3" beneath the surface, you won't need to water for a few more days. If it is dry, it's time to water again. Best wishes with your new burning bushes!
