How much does a newly planted shrub have to be watered?

Just enough to keep the soil moist…not soggy wet, but not bone dry either.  Feel the soil…if it cool and moist, you don’t need to water.  If it is dry a couple of inches deep…give it a good soak.  Don’t spray it with water…set a trickling hose at the base of the plant and let it soak in slowly.  Water sprayed on the leaves doesn’t help the roots.
