The Q&A Archives: planting in the summer

Question: I purchased 14 prunus x cistena (purple leaf sand cherry) from Home Depot over the weekend. Despite weather reports for cooler summer days, the afternoon sun beat down on my new plantings. I followed instructions to a tee and backfilled with %50 Miracle Grow Sphagnum peat moss and %50 eko claybuster/soil ammend. The next day the leaves whilted and some have dried out. I water twice a day. help
