When do you have too much water in a new planting???You can plant if the ground is not frozen. But you have to monitor the moisture in the bed, too much or too little can both be problems anytime.
I did a lot of planting this last week and will do some more next week. Last year at this time planting was not an option.
It can happen, last summer I planted a weeping colorado blue spruce in a new bed with a lot of other plantings and the customer watered frequently. I cannot be absolutely certain, but it seems like the poor thing got watered to death.When do you have too much water in a new planting???
