FRUIT TREES

Before planting, make sure the tree being planted will survive in the climate. Plant fruit trees in spring and plant where it will get six-eight hours of sun daily. It is important to use a few stakes around the tree for increased support.

 

A 2-3” layer of mulch can be added around the base (3” away from base) to help maintain moisture in the soil.

 

Water at least once per week (wetting the soil 2" deep) until the tree roots are established.

 

Whether the soil needs amendments or not is dependent on the soil. If amendments are added to the soil, Kristy K Organics Compost can be applied on the surface after planting, rather than mixed into the soil.
