Answer: Now that your dogwood is in the ground, all you will need to do is keep it well watered and feed it in the spring. If you haven't already, make a watering well or watering basin beneath the tree by mounding up a few inches of soil all around, about 12" from the trunk. Fill the basin with water, allow to drain, then fill it a second time. Once or twice a week should be all your tree needs. Watering in this way will concentrate the moisture directly over the root mass and allow it to trickle down, wetting the entire root ball. Best wishes with your new tree!
