STEP 1) First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need.
STEP 2) Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.
I have a dozen various dwarf apple trees. My two early apples are Anna and Dorsett Golden. While the Dorsett minds his manners and obeys my pruning cuts the Anna has a mind of her own and resists me. She grows and grows and grows. Sprouting all up and down the limbs and trunk although I never see any suckers she is known for pushing out new growth just about any where she has a bare spot. I have stopped winter pruning her due to this habit. Now I summer prune only. This year I even reduced her fertilizer and water to keep her within her area. So, for whatever reason my Anna is hard to contain. I am trying to keep her under 10ft but she'd rather be 15. This year her fruit load is minimal due to my deliberate severe pruning but two years back she was so loaded I was worried she'd break a scaffold limb. Just know that she can be unruly in certain situations. I am at 5200ft 7b No. AZ. The fruit is tasty and sweet but mushy when it is fully ripened on the tree. Also the apples are big and pretty. I'm picking all of them in few days and making pie filling.
I ordered 2 Anna apple trees and 2 Golden Dorsett apple trees. The trees came in one shipment and arrived via fed ex nicely in one large box and each tree was larger than I expected (measured around 4 ft tall.) I followed the directions and waited a couple days to plant. I planted all the trees 10 days ago and So far they are doing great! I already have about 6-10 new leafs on each tree. I live in central Florida and was very excited to find apple trees that are expected to flourish in our hot climate. 5 stars so far!!
It is a beautiful tree. I'm very happy with it and the service
IT WAS IN GOOD CONDITION. i SHOULD HAVE LOOKED AT WALMART BEFORE ORDERING. . FOR A MUCH LARGER PLANT AND MUCH LOWER PRICE.
All went well re this purchase - tree already budding new leaves - Thanks !
