Are you ready to plant some fruit trees in your garden and enjoy fresh, juicy fruit all year round? Here is a quick guide to get you started:
Choose the Right Site: Pick a site with enough sunlight and well-draining soil. Avoid planting in low-lying areas where water may collect and cause root rot.
Dig the Hole and add Amendments: Dig a hole twice as wide and as deep as the tree's root ball, then mix organic soil amendments like Kristy K Organics Premium Organic Compost 1:2 with native soil. Enriching the soil with essential nutrients will help establish healthy root growth.
Plant The Tree: Place your tree in the hole, level it with the surrounding soil, add some stakes for support, and water it well to settle the soil around the roots.
Add Organic Mulch: Spread a 2-3" layer of organic mulch around the base, ensuring it's 3" away from the base. This will help to keep the soil moist and suppress weed growth. Using our Shredded Bark Mulch to keep it from blowing away.
Water Regularly: Water your fruit trees at least once a week to keep the soil moist, allowing the water to penetrate 2" deep until the roots are established.
Fertilize Smartly: After a year of planting, you can start fertilizing with Premium Organic Compost or Chicken Manure Tea for fruit trees. If the soil needs amendments, you can add Kristy K Organics Compost on the surface without mixing it with the soil.
With these tips, you'll be well on your way to growing healthy, happy fruit trees that produce a bountiful crop of delicious fruit. Happy planting, gorgeous!
