Leaves wilting on newly planted red maple tree
I put it in the ground before reading up on how to plant it. from what i later saw, there wasn't enough space around the base, it was too tightly packed, and I put the fertilizer into the ground. i dug it up and now it's standing in a big hole in my yard. how can I save it? someone suggested I flush the hole with water to weaken the fertilizer. is there any hope?
