Apple Tree Notes:

Plant where trees will get sun for most of the day in a well drained soil. Dig a hole large enough to accommodate the roots, don’t add fertilizers or compost when filling the hole, save those for a top-dressing once the tree leafs out. Always protect your new trees with a “mouse guard” either a wrap from a garden center or a tube made from hardware cloth. Apple trees set better crops when at least two different varieties are planted for cross pollination.

PICK TREES THAT BLOOM AT THE SAME TIME FOR PROPER POLLINATION AND FRUITING!
