1/4" or NO WATERING - TexasET Network Landscape Watering Recommendations - "Cougar Austin Redbud"

Watering  this week is recommended @  1/4" if you have sandy or silty soils ( or rocky ), otherwise for clay soils I would hold off another week, we are potentially going to get some rain next Monday/Tuesday and letting the soils  dry out is actually better for heavy clay soils this time of year. 

It's starting to look a lot like Spring this past week, with some new shoots popping up. Flowing quince is starting pop out which is always the first indicator of spring,

but I would not get too excited as it looks like one last freeze/wintery mix coming through next Tuesday. It seems like almost every year, we get a late February freezing icy storm that kills all the early "pre-spring" plant growth. Hopefully this is the last one of the season.
