Secret ingredient for happy trees.

Water!  We have found a secret ingredient to keep trees happy this year.  It is called water. Certain areas of Puget Sound, including us here in the Skagit Valley are in a severe drought. Calls continue to come in with people asking what is wrong with their trees. More often then not, the plants need water.  Long slow, deep watering is the best, try it and you will be amazed!  Then if you get really ambitious, add 3 to 4 inches of composted mulch under the dripline of the tree, but not against the trunk. With mulch, you can water less frequently.
