Newly planted trees and the weather

The weather continues to keep us guessing!

We have had a very dry winter, a very warm spell in spring and also some hard frosts at night. Recent showers haven't penetrated the soil to any great depth.

Newly planted trees will need watering, even after rain, check the soil moisture a couple of inches down and water appropriately, click here to read our watering advice information sheet.

The warm weather in spring encouraged fresh new growth that was vulnerable to frost damage - and we had at least a couple of nights of very hard frost.  Luckily hardy trees and shrubs can cope with short periods of frost but you may see symptoms such as browning or scorching of the leaves.

Advice for young plants Frost damage on Hydrangeas

For example, this year we have seen evidence of frost damage on Acers, Davidia, Photinia and Hydrangeas. If there is damage to the whole leaf this can be pruned off but leave only partially damaged leaves on the plant as they will continue to photosynthesize. As long as the plant has sufficient water and nutrients and as temperatures warm up new growth should continue.
