Silver Birch


Recommended Posts


Can anyone advise me on the watering of a newly planted Silver Birch tree?

I planted it in the garden in September 2016 and as a holiday home, will not return to it until April this year.

Soil is mainly clay and dries like concrete.

I am located in the southwest of France, so summers can be very hot and dry.

If watering is necessary in April, how often and how much?

Your thoughts please.

The SW has been very dry the last few months. Still dry now until ?Thursday.

If I were you I would ask someone nearby to have a look at it and put a few buckets of water around it regularly, with some kind of mulch on top.

I would say it's at risk otherwise.
