|I live in Massachusetts-Zone 6A. I live in a town where we are presently allowed to hand water from 5 p.m. to 9 a.m. -ban will be over October 31. Is November too late to plant a bush or perennial- I know it needs time to develop a root system before the winter. I am aware that the best way to water a new plant is to put the hose next to the base of the plant and let it trickle-deep watering is best. If I plant before November is hand watering going to be as effective as the trickle method? I suppose I will be standing there for several minutes. Thank you!|

|Not too sure about the timing in your area, but another alternative to trickle watering is to take a 5 gallon bucket, put a small hole near the bottom of the bucket, and set it next to the new plant. Fill the bucket and go off to more interesting things.
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.
