Hi all, A couple of general questions if I may as of course still very much the novice gardener - although improving every day with the great help of this site.

Should I, despite all the recent rainfall in Dublin, continue to water newly planted trees/shrubs - in particular, a Himalayan birch (planted in March) and my amelanchier robin hill (planted beginning of June)?
And if so, how much per week?

And I know it's a bit early but already thinking ahead for winter, but if all the predictions hold true we are in for more of the same harsh winters as the last two, so regarding mulching, I am thinking of using small bark but I've read that they are a haven for my most hated insect - earwigs. Is this true and can they be discouraged from getting comfy in there? I absolutely hate them and I suddenly remembered this week why I hated dahlia's so much as a child! UGH.
Anyway, thanks for any links or advice.
