If you have ever tasted an apple, fresh off an apple tree, you know that they have their own, distinct flavor, like nothing you will find in the grocery store.
If you are yearning for that fresh, homegrown taste of crisp, juicy apples, consider planting your own apple tree! Here are some tips on how to plant and care for an apple tree.
Be sure to investigate which kind of tree is best for your climate, by simply searching the web, or by chatting with the gardeners at your local nursery.
Apple trees require full sun, and you will also want to get your soil tested to make sure that it is ready for the root system.
Begin by digging a hole about 2 feet deep, and twice the diameter of the roots. Sprinkle a little bit of soil back into the hole, and then carefully place the roots on top, making sure not to overlap, or twist them.
It is important to give trees some space while they are young, and the root system is still developing. Be sure to water it regularly.
