I had a white crepe mertyl planted 01/08/16 - when should I start ferilizing? Do I water this plant also? It's six foot tall and fragile looking.

This is the first time that I have had a tree this young and I do not want to do anything to harm it!
Asked by: Juan
Juan, You do not want to fertilize your Crape Myrtle in the middle of winter, wait until you start to see some growth in spring before you apply some fertilizer(I recommend a slow-release granular fertilizer). As far as watering just make sure your new plant does not dry out excessively by watering well at least once a week while your plant is dormant in winter. If you get rain, do not worry about watering your plant. When spring rolls around you need to make sure you water at least once a week or twice a week during dry periods at least for the first year while your new plant is getting established. Thank you for your question!

2 Gal. Delta Moonlight Crape Myrtle is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 1.

I went ahead and planted it hoping it still had some life, still waiting to see what happens. I would have returned it but had to leave town and had no time to do so. Either way it seemed poorly secured in the packaging and clearly did not have enough hydration for the journey. Next time I'll find one at a nursery, probably when I have to replace this one in a few weeks because it is, in fact, long gone.
