    We have a native dogwood on our property which has rooted in a rocky area. The tree is now about 15 feet tall. It has been rather neglected and did not receive much water this summer. Since we are not able to water regularly I wonder what we can do to ensure that it is able survive. Would it be worthwhile to fertilize or put a deep layer of mulch at its base to prevent water loss?

    The mulch would help. Fertiliser probably wouldn't.

    Probably would prefer to not be watered, actually.
