water it in good after planting to get the air pockets out, then just keep it moist. most areas will get enough moisture from rain this time of year. i would think once every week or two would be enough during dry periods. also, if it is going to get extremely cold water the night before.

As kerry pointed out, keep it watered. A dogwood will sometimes die in winter if not adequatgely watered. Even in warm weather, periodic watering is good if the rainfall is skimpy. Dogwoods don't manage water well. I guess it is due the their nature of being an understory tree sharing the ground water with larger trees.

Feed the dogwood a balanced fertilizer in late December or early January. This will go to the roots, rather than force the growth of leaves as would happen with spring or summer feedings.
