It's pouring. It's been pouring most of the night. DO NOT BEGRUDGE IT!
This is natures way of taking care of trees and shrubs. Trees and shrubs need all the water they can store up before the frost gets so deep they get no more moisture. If they go into the winter "dry" it will be very stressful for them. This is why it's so important to water your shrubs and trees before winter really establishes itself.
In the spring they will have a HUGE job ahead of them. They will have lots of leaves and blossoms to generate. If they start thirsty and stressed, it only stands to reason that your show won't be as good. Then on top of that, if there's an onslaught of some kind of blight or insect infestation, just imagine how difficlut that will be for them.
Stay ahead of this nasty curve and be sure your trees and shrubs always go into winter well hydrated! Mother Nature helps, but there's just so much nature can accomplish. Give a hand and water those trees and shrubs!
