Text From a Listener:

  • New to Arizona and ready to plant a few produce trees. What does he need to know about watering by hand?

Recommendation – It all depends on how well the soil drains and he needs to remember pecan trees take a huge amount of water, but avoid over-watering by testing the soil. John describes the process in detail.
