I recently planted 30 purple beech trees (60/90cm size) in the hope of growing a hedge to the front of my house. This will be the second attempt as the winter killed off the treees I planted last year! I also, on advice of the nursery, used a product called RootGrow on the plants before I put them in the ground. He also told me to water them periodically if we went without rain for any length of time. My questions are this: will this spate of terrible weather likely to have killed them off again (they've been in only about 4 weeks)? If not should i be feeding them with any supplement(s)? Any what about trhe watering advice - how often and for how long? with thanks in advance.
