|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. |
