Plant Trees and Shrubs in Autumn Months

Plant your new trees and shrubs in October, when dormant plants will be under less stress. According to the University of Tennessee Gardens, newly planted deciduous plants require almost no watering during the winter months, as long as they are thoroughly watered when they are first planted.

Monitor your evergreens, including junipers, hollies and arborvitae, through the winter if the season is particularly dry. Winter winds can hurt evergreen trees if they don’t have enough moisture.
