    My husband and I moved a 5 ft Japanese Maple 4 days ago to a new spot. We watered it well and then received alot of rain. The leaves are still wilted not dry. Should we water again or hold off?
    Thank-you in advance

    Hold off for now. No need to water until the surface of the soil dries out a bit. If there hasn't been any significant rain, watering a newly moved maple once a week is usually enough, and give it a good soak. In very hot weather increase the frequency.
