Planting & Care

1. Planting: Start by selecting a location with full sun (6 hours of sunlight per day) and well-drained soil. Now that you've found your location, start planting by digging a hole that's twice the width of the root ball and just as deep. Then, place your tree and tamp down the soil. Finally, water to settle the roots and mulch to preserve moisture.

FGT Tip: Make sure your mulch is not touching the base of the trunk.

2. Watering: Your apple will benefit from regular watering each week. You may need to water more often in times of extreme heat or drought. However, if you're not sure when to water, simply check the soil about 2 or 3 inches down. If the soil is dry here, it's time to water.

3. Pruning: Once your tree has become established and is starting to bear fruit, it will need some periodic, moderate pruning. Only prune the tree during times of dormancy, making sure to remove any vigorous, upright stems and weak, damaged or dead branches.

4. Fertilizing: Feed your tree with a 5-10-10 fertilizer per label instructions, but only start after they begin growing steadily. We recommend spreading your fertilizer a few inches away from the tree's trunk.
